Description

1851-O MS 65 NGC. While the '51-O is generally available in lesser grades, the opportunity to purchase a gem New Orleans half dime is rare indeed. In the South, silver coins generally went into circulation and stayed there, and very few have survived today in pristine condition. This is a deeply toned example that displays cobalt-blue and golden-brown coloration across both sides. There is little of the localized striking weakness commonly found on '51-O half dimes, only the top of Liberty's head and the leaves on the wreath show any lack of highpoint detail. Population: 9 in 65, only 1 finer. (NGC ID# 233J, PCGS# 4348)

I just wanted to take a quick minute to let you and your boss know how very much I enjoyed working with you and Heritage. When I started this process, I had no idea what I was doing- it was like learning a foreign language!
