    1800 Draped Bust Half Dime, AU58
    LIBEKTY, V-2, LM-3 Variety

    1800 H10C LIBEKTY AU58 PCGS. V-2, LM-3, R.4. The 1800 Draped Bust half dime claims a mintage of 40,000 pieces, with four different die varieties known for the date. This coin represents the scarce LM-4 variety, with the incomplete R in the obverse legend (LIBEKTY) and the leaf joined to the left upright of the second A in AMERICA. The obverse die was used again to strike the LM-4 variety, while the reverse was used previously to coin the LM-1 and LM-2 varieties.

    The present coin retains much of its original design detail, showing just a trace of actual wear. The reverse strike is typical of the issue , with some incompleteness on the central stars. The slate-gray and blue-steel surfaces are lightly abraded and traces of mint luster shine through the patina on both sides. Population: 5 in 58 (1 in 58+), 14 finer (1/14).
    From the collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 2326, PCGS# 4265)
