    1837 Half Dime, Delicately Toned MS66
    Condition Census V-1, LM-5 Example

    1837 H10C Large 5C, V-1, LM-5, R.1, MS66 NGC. The A in AMERICA is repunched on this collectible type-coin variety. The present piece displays satin luster with a hint of champagne toning near the borders. The obverse is sharp save for the lower-left border dentils, and the reverse shows mild weakness only on the eagle's left (facing) wing. Struck from clashed dies. Regardless of variety, the 1837 half dime is rare this fine and almost unknown finer. Census (all varieties included): 5 in 66 (1 in 66 ), 1 finer (1/17). (NGC ID# 232K, Variety PCGS# 38733, Base PCGS# 4289)
