    V-1, LM-1 1800 Half Dime
    AU55, CAC Gold

    1800 H10C AU55 PCGS. CAC Gold Label. V-1, LM-1, R.3. The V-1 1800 half dime is the most frequently encountered of the varieties known for this date. All four digits in the date are equally spaced on this variety, and the first star is low in the field. On this example, the design elements are nicely defined, save for the eagle's breast. It is generally well-centered on the planchet and most of the dentils show on each side. A mix of lavender, light gray, cobalt-blue, and yellow patination bathes well-preserved surfaces that display traces of luster in the protected areas. A couple of small marks on the bottom of Liberty's neck are mentioned for accuracy, but the coin's eye appeal transcends even Choice AU standards, as suggested by the CAC gold label.
