Description:
1839-O V-2B Half Dime, MS66
Latest Die State Seen
1839-O H10C No Drapery MS66 NGC. V-2B. Repunched Date. In addition to its remarkable preservation, this is a fabulous piece for the advanced Seated half dime specialist. The 1 and 9 are each boldly recut below, much sharper than the illustration on page 38 of Al Blythe's half dime reference.
The reverse die is shattered, further than described in Valentine for his variety 2B. A crack through the first T in STATES extends to the wreath, and another, through the left side of the O extends to the L in HALF, the left upright of the M in DIME, and continues to the left ribbon loop. A branch of that crack extends through the right upright of the M to the lowest group of leaves and the right stem, to the border.
Both sides of this sharply defined Premium Gem have satin luster beneath deep steel-blue and iridescent toning. Only a few insignificant marks are evident. Census: 2 in 66, 1 finer (12/11).(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 232T, PCGS# 4320)
