Description:
Deeply Toned 1856 Gem Proof Half Dime
1856 H10C PR65 NGC. The exact number of half dime proofs minted in 1856 is unknown, though Walter Breen in his Encyclopedia of United States and Colonial Proof Coins says there are "possibly 30 to 40 around." NGC and PCGS population figures more or less seem to corroborate Breen's estimate, as the two services have graded about 30 examples.
Deep bluish-purple toning dominates both sides of this Gem specimen, accented with orange, crimson, and yellow-gold. An exacting strike manifests itself in sharp definition on the design elements. Both faces appear nicely preserved. Census: 5 in 65, 4 finer (3/09).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 235L, PCGS# 4434)
