Lovely 1860 Transitional Half Dime, MS64 PCGS.

1860 H10C Transitional MS64 PCGS. Judd-267. The "Transitional" half dimes of 1860 were produced as "trade bait" by Mint Director James Ross Snowden, ostensibly for trades to benefit the Mint Cabinet Collection. It is generally accepted that 100 pieces were struck, all as business strikes, whereas the 1859 pieces are all proofs. What makes these coins distinctive is the lack of an issuing authority, leading collectors over the years to label these as a "Coin Without a Country." This is a lovely, lustrous example that has touches of golden-brown patina over each side. Weakly struck, as usually seen, there are no objectionable marks on either side. Population: 16 in 64, 18 finer (9/04).(#4373) (NGC ID# 2346, PCGS# 4373)
