Description

Gem 1849-O Half Dime Rarity

1849-O H10C MS 65 NGC. Lustrous with mottled cobalt toning and the weak strike sometimes seen with this date. Close examination reveals no significant defects. The '49-O has the second lowest mintage (140,000 pieces) of the entire Stars series. Al Blythe in his book on Seated Liberty half dimes calls this issue very scarce in grades of AU and above with Mint State specimens low R.6. Obviously, it claims an even higher rarity in gem condition. Only 2 pieces have been certified in gem condition by NGC and PCGS combined, with none finer (6/99). (NGC ID# 233E, PCGS# 4344)

If my clients were to auction something of significance, having Mike as the auctioneer would be a deal maker as far as I am concerned.
