Superb 1860 Transitional Half Dime, MS67 NGC

1860 H10C Transitional MS67 NGC. Judd-267. Although technically a pattern, this transitional issue has earned a place of prominence in the Seated half dime series. It is believed that the Philadelphia Mint produced about 100 of these coins early in 1860. Since the obverse retained the stars of the 1838-1859 issues and the reverse was that of the 1860-1873 issues, these fascinating coins do not bear the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The stars of both the 1859 and 1860 issues are hollow. This is a wholly original example with bright silver-gray lustrous surfaces. The strike is well above average for the issue, with most of the design elements well impressed. Only a couple of stars along the upper right obverse border reveal softness in the centers. Even the leaves on the reverse wreath display nice detail. The pristine surfaces are immaculately well preserved, exhibiting no mentionable contact marks. An excellent opportunity for the advanced Seated Liberty half dime specialist, this lovely Superb Gem should command a generous bid. Population: 2 in 67, 1 finer (9/04).(#4373) (NGC ID# 2346, PCGS# 4373)

The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
