Description:
Incredible MS68 1838 Large Stars Half Dime
1838 H10C Large Stars, No Drapery MS68 NGC. A simply amazing example that confounds any explanation for how it survived in such an incredible state of preservation for more than 160 years. The luster is exceptionally strong and seems undimmed from the day it was coined. Liberty and the wreath have uniformly crisp detail, and rich peach, honey, plum, and blueberry patina covers much of each side, though the centers are untoned. A trio of tiny marks in the left obverse field, visible only with the aid of magnification, are the only perceptible flaws on that side; light lines around the figure of Liberty are merely die polish. Of the two MS68 examples graded by NGC, this is the only one to have received the Star designation (6/08).
From the Duffy Collection.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 2TXX, PCGS# 4317)
