Eye Appealing 1849/8/6 Half Dime, Incredible MS 67 Level of Preservation

1849/8/6 H10C MS 67 NGC. FS-001.5. The present specimen has several noteworthy features going for it, not the least of which is the fact that it is simply a beautiful coin. Electric-blue and russet toning adheres to the obverse denticles and features, although the balance of that side is brilliant. The reverse displays a similar toning scheme with markedly lighter coloration throughout. The rich satin luster radiates through the holder uninhibited by even the most trivial contact mark. Razor sharp definition allows for full appreciation of the design elements as well as the repunched date. As Walter Breen asserts that the 1849/8/6 half dime is "very rare" (Encyclopedia, 1988), we feel safe in assuming that this lovely Superb Gem is among the finest, if not the finest, certified survivor of this popular overdate variety. (NGC ID# 233D, PCGS# 4343)
