Description

Extremely Rare 1855 Proof Half-Dime

1855 Arrows PR 65 NGC. Proof coinage prior to 1858 is considered very rare, and this half-dime is no exception. Original mintage figures are unknown, but both services combined have certified only 13 examples in all grades (some of these are likely resubmissions). This example is bright, sparkling, and interestingly toned with a wide streak of antique-golden color running diagonally across the obverse. Sky-blue colorations surround it. The reverse exhibits a mostly brilliant center with deepening golden colors toward the border. For pedigree purposes, a small diagonal mark is noted at the top of the M of DIME on the reverse. A rare and elusive proof issue. Population: 3 in PR 65, 1 finer (12/96). (NGC ID# 235T, PCGS# 4433)
