    1836 Capped Bust Half Dime, MS66+
    V-4, LM-3, FS-301, 3 Over Inverted 3

    1836 H10C 3 Over Inverted 3, V-4, LM-3, FS-301, R.1, MS66+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Remnants of the inverted 3 are visible in the open loop of the primary 3 in the date. The reverse shows the Large 5C, and the U in UNITED is repunched. LM-3 is a plentiful variety, often seen in date and type collectors' cabinets. However, the 1836 Capped Bust half dime as a date is a major condition rarity in MS66 or better grades. Only six Large 5C coins are reported at PCGS in MS66 and finer. This Plus-designated example is within the Condition Census. Sharp detail characterizes the peripheral stars, and the centers show only minor softness. Satiny luster is largely unabraded, and the original toning on each side yields shades of lavender, gold, olive, and russet. The eye appeal of this piece is outstanding. Population (Large 5C): 5 in 66 (2 in 66+), 1 finer (9/20).
