Description:
1838 Seated Liberty Half Dime, MS68
Large Stars, No Drapery, V-8
Tied for Finest Certified
1838 H10C Large Stars, No Drapery MS68 NGC. V-8. A stunning Superb Gem. As of (11/09), only three examples of this date have been certified at the seemingly unobtainable grade of MS68 at NGC. Part of a large mintage of 2.2 million pieces, the 1838 Large Stars half dime is an available date, and the issue enjoys great popularity as a type coin.
The present coin is a magnificent specimen, with untoned centers surrounded by bands of iridescent rose and cobalt-blue. Well defined features, mark-free surfaces, and radiant luster define the technical grade, while a combination of the aforementioned qualities and the aesthetically pleasing coloration explains the notation on the NGC label. The attribution of this V-8 specimen is confirmed by the position of star 1, not low, but close to the rock on the obverse and a die crack from the reverse rim through the left side of M in AMERICA. Partial dentilation from 6 o'clock to 12 o'clock on the reverse is common to the issue. Census: 3 in 68 , 0 finer (11/09).(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 2TXX, PCGS# 4317)
