Description

Superb Proof 1858 Half Dime, Ex Floyd Starr

1858 H10C PR67 NGC. Ex: Starr. Both sides exhibit moderate cameo contrast with fully and deeply mirrored fields beneath champagne, sea-green, cobalt-blue, and iridescent toning. Obviously the Valentine-8 variety described by Breen: "8's have a rather soft, indefinite appearance, as does lower part of the 5." The entire figure of Liberty has a similar soft appearance, suggesting a worn obverse die. The reverse is crisp and sharply defined.
In the Floyd Starr sale, this piece was part of a complete seven coin 1858 minor and silver proof set that was offered as individual lots. There was no previous pedigree information presented in the catalog. Census: 1 in 67, 0 finer (3/07).
Ex: Floyd Starr (Stack's, 10/1992), lot 616.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 235N, PCGS# 4437)
