Description:
Rare 1844 Half Dime, PR64
Razor-Sharp Strike
1844 H10C PR64 PCGS. Most proof examples of the 1844 half dime come from the Valentine-1 obverse die, as Heritage cataloger Jon Amato showed when cataloging the Phil Kaufman Collection example, a PR67 NGC coin. He also managed to identify only five separate proof coins -- four V-1, one V-3 -- from among the 13 then-current submissions at NGC and PCGS. Whatever the true number of survivors, it is safe to say that the issue is a great rarity, surviving to the extent of perhaps 10 certified and raw specimens in all.
The present PR64 PCGS coin also comes from the V-1 obverse, with the date rather high and sloping slightly downward from left to right. This piece features a razor-sharp strike that complements deeply mirrored fields. Alternative waves of golden-russet and powder-gray to bluish toning provide just the right finish on this rare and attractive early proof. Population: 1 in 64, 1 finer (12/12).
