Description

Eliasberg's PR66 1836 V-5 Half Dime

1836 H10C Large 5C PR66 NGC. V-5, LM-1, R.5. Scarce as a die marriage, and extremely rare as a proof. This present piece was mentioned in Breen's Proof Encyclopedia (1977) as #2 within the V-5 roster. Only two other proof 1836 half dimes (of any variety) have been certified, a PR65 NGC and a PR66 PCGS. This splendid Premium Gem is beautifully toned in aquamarine, plum, and russet freckles. The devices are lightly frosted, and the fields exhibit flash. The left shield border and Liberty's forehead curls are incompletely defined, but the strike is exacting elsewhere, particularly on the stars. Obverse dentils have a stretched and high relief appearance, which suggests two blows were delivered to bring up the design. This proof was struck after a quantity of business strikes, since a thread-like vertical die crack crosses the portrait, and bolder cracks bookend the ED in UNITED. Later business strikes from these dies display a retained cud in this area.
