    1837 Capped Bust Half Dime, MS66
    V-3, LM-1, Exceptional, Dappled Toning

    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 (4/20).
