1795 V-5, LM-8 Half Dime, MS64+
1795 H10C MS64+ NGC. CAC. V-5, LM-8, R.3. This variety
combines the first use of the obverse die with the third and final
use of the reverse die. The obverse is normally found with a heavy
die crack from the border through the Y to Liberty's nose and
beyond. On this Choice Mint State piece, that crack is delicate and
much lighter than usual. The Eric P. Newman specimen is a wonderful
half dime with brilliant and frosty silver luster showing
peripheral blue and gold toning on the obverse. The reverse has
several thin, horizontal lines of gold toning. The strike is
deficient on the reverse with little detail present on the eagle's
breast and wings. Overall, a highly pleasing example for a date or
type collection. Census: 35 in 64 (1 in 64+), 18 finer (10/13).

A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
