Description:
'Nationless' 1860 Half Dime, MS67
1860 H10C Transitional MS67 NGC. Judd-267, Pollock-315, R.4. Considered a pattern by tradition, the Transitional half dime was actually issued by James Ross Snowden as "trade bait" to help enhance the Mint Collection. Most collectors today include it as a part of 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 preserved, with no mentionable contact marks. An excellent opportunity for the advanced Seated Liberty half dime specialist, this lovely Superb Gem should command a generous bid. Census: 3 in 67, 1 finer (8/07). (NGC ID# 2346, PCGS# 4373)
