    Patinated AU 1800 Half Dime
    LIBEKTY, V-2, LM-3.

    1800 H10C LIBEKTY AU50 NGC. V-2, LM-3, R.4. The collectible LIBEKTY variety, since its alternative, LM-4, is extremely rare. The letter punch for R had a broken upper crossbar when it was selected by obverse die engraver, and with a little imagination it resembles the letter K. The variety is sometimes confused with the 1796 LIKERTY, caused by a broken and softly impressed B punch. Of course, any 1800 half dime is desirable, as a representative of the difficult Draped Bust, Heraldic Reverse type. This example is splendidly detailed and displays attractive cream-gray, golden-brown, and cobalt-blue patina. Faint field hairlines are consistent with the grade. From a later state with localized die failure beneath the eagle's beak, as made.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2008), lot 1565, which realized $9,200.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 2326, PCGS# 4265)
