Delightful PR64 1842 Half Dime

1842 H10C PR64 PCGS. An exceptional early Seated proof half dime. Walter Breen, in his Encyclopedia of United States and Colonial Proof Coins, cited only seven known examples, and the PCGS and NGC total populations are two and five, respectively. Still other sources claim a mintage of eight pieces. Whatever the true figure, it is clear that this is an extreme rarity, and the example offered here is graded a respectable PR64. Violet-gold patina covers each side, and blue-green toning also appears within the wreath on the reverse. The strike is crisp, and the devices reveal few flaws, though a handful of hairlines and tiny contact marks are scattered in the fields. In light of the history and overall eye appeal of this piece, such minor troubles are forgivable and are unlikely to lessen anyone's appreciation of this diminutive silver proof. Population: 2 in 64, 0 finer (12/12).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 235A, PCGS# 4418)
