1837 Capped Bust Half Dime, MS66
1837 H10C Large 5C, V-3, LM-1, R.1, MS66 PCGS. Ex: Col.
Green-Newman-Simpson. This frequently seen variety is characterized
by bold repunching at the bottom of the 7 in the date, and on the
reverse by the large 5C. and positioning of the U close to the
eagle's wing. The early die state is apparent from the very faint
obverse die crack, the only sign of die cracking we see. The
surfaces of this half dime are nothing short of extraordinary. Each
side displays bright, dappled red and green toning. The surfaces
are nearly perfectly preserved and exhibit bright mint luster. As
often seen on this variety, the strike is soft on the eagle's left
(facing) wing. Specialists will surely take interest in this
one-of-a-kind half dime. Population: 8 in 66 (4 in 66+), 0 finer
