    1800 V-1, LM-1 Half Dime, MS63
    Late Die State, Double Struck Both Sides

    1800 H10C V-1, LM-1, R.3. MS63 PCGS. Strongly double struck on both the obverse and the reverse, most obviously on the scroll but also visible on virtually all the motifs. This is a Select Uncirculated example of the LM-1 die pair -- the most available die marriage of 1800 -- with a total mintage of 40,000 pieces for the date.

    The strike displays weakness on the obverse, a result of the late die state, strong die clash, and likely die wear. Liberty's uppermost hair strands and several stars show doubling. A large die break and cud below the date and die clashing above the date are diagnostic of the late die state. The reverse is weak at the shield and the eagle's breast. Eye appeal is strong, however, with attractive orange, blue, and iridescent shades covering both sides of the coin. Population (all varieties): 17 in 63, 28 finer (10/14). (NGC ID# 2326, Variety PCGS# 38601, Base PCGS# 4264)
