MS62, V-4, LM-2
Medium grayish-blue patina covers both sides of this MS62 example. Most of the obverse design elements display strong definition, except for the usual softness in the lower middle part of Liberty's hair. The peripheral reverse elements are sharp, while most of the eagle's plumage is typically incomplete. Devoid of mentionable contact marks. Clash marks are visible in the lower right obverse field. This is a highly attractive early half dime.
