Description

Iridescent-Toned 1870 Half Dime, MS68
Sole Finest at NGC

1870 H10C MS68 NGC. The 1870 half dime is, according to Al Blythe, a common date, with a mintage of 535,000 business strikes. The present coin is nonetheless found in an extremely uncommon condition. This piece is one of only two MS68s of the issue certified at NGC, and the sole possessor of the Star designation for superior eye appeal. The centers of each side are radiant silver-white, with iridescent shades of blue, jade, and copper at the rims. A curious area of roughness, as made at the Mint, appears in the crook of Liberty's upturned arm at the elbow. Whether this is a planchet flaw or something in the die, we cannot say. A marvelously appealing half dime from shortly before the series ended in the "Crime of '73."(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 234T, PCGS# 4396)
