Desirable 1852 Half Dime, PR64 Cameo

1852 H10C PR64 Cameo NGC. Proof coins from the early 1850s are all rare, and 1852 is one of the rarest dates of the decade. This lovely Cameo proof has excellent contrast between the fields and devices. Heavy vertical and diagonal die polishing lines are evident in the fields on both sides. The devices are brilliant and lustrous, with bright mint frost. Both sides are entirely untoned, showing their silver-white brilliance to its best advantage.
This piece is similar in quality to the Phil Kaufman coin that we sold in July 2008, although it is a different coin. This is only the seventh appearance of a proof 1852 half dime in any of our sales since 1993, from a total estimated population of eight or nine coins. Census: 2 in 64 Cameo, 0 finer (10/09).(Registry values: P3) (PCGS# 84429)
