Rare PR64 1857 Seated Half Dime

1857 H10C PR64 PCGS. V-3. This is an immensely popular proof issue because the Mint failed to record the original mintage. An aura of mystery surrounds such coins, one that, in not a few cases, has led to an overestimation of rarity. As for the proof 1857 half dime, there can be little doubt that the adjective "rare" applies. Only 53 specimens have been certified by NGC and PCGS in all grades (4/08), a figure that includes one impaired example and likely several resubmissions. The present representative is carefully preserved with no postproduction impairments of note. Golden and gray-tinged with sharp striking detail and a pleasingly reflective finish. Population: 15 in 64, 3 finer (4/08).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 3X58, PCGS# 4436)
