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