Amazing 1837 No Stars Half Dime, MS67
Triple Punched Date

1837 H10C No Stars, Large Date (Curl Top 1) MS67 PCGS. V-1. The changeover from Capped Bust to Liberty Seated half dimes happened on July 25, 1837. The Capped Bust mintage was 871,000 pieces, then the 1837 Liberty Seated coinage amounted to an additional 1,405,000 half dimes. There is incredible eye appeal on this interesting transitional type, created with the No Stars obverse. That obverse design was used only in Philadelphia in 1837, and only in New Orleans in 1838. The Large Date is easily distinguished by the Curl Top 1, whereas the Small Date has the Flat Top 1. The date is triple punched, easily visible on this early-die-state coin on the 8, which has one repunching so low it is in the denticles. The Large Date, a bit more common than the Small Date, used the punches from the Capped Bust half dimes, while the Small Date used the punches of 1838 Seated half dimes. Proof coins were made of the V-1 die, as well as business strikes. This piece shows needle-sharp strike definition throughout, complemented by gorgeous original patina of mint-green in the centers and russet-gold and copper at the rims. Essentially mark-free, and unimprovable at PCGS. Population: 3 in 67, 0 finer (3/09).
