1851-O Half Dime, Gem Uncirculated
Seldom Seen in High Grades

1851-O H10C MS65 NGC. V-1. Two die pairings served for the New Orleans Mint's emission of 860,000 half dimes in 1851. On survivors of V-1, the first 1 in the date is free of Liberty's rock, whereas on examples of V-2 this digit touches the base of the rock. This is the more sharply struck die marriage of the 1851-O half dime, but, in true New Orleans Mint fashion, the coin is not fully struck. Still, all major design elements are bold, and the satiny features reveal modest hints of brightness in the fields. Streaks of olive-gray patina on the reverse, as well as some lavender-gray and blue at the upper right obverse border, interrupt the otherwise steel-gray sheen. When offered at all, the elusive 1851-O is apt to display some degree of wear. This date is undeniably rare as a Gem. Census: 11 in 65, 7 finer (1/11).
