    Description

    PCGS 1800 MS 63. V-1, R.3. A select example of this popular date among early half dimes, the first year of Heraldic Eagle production. The surfaces are toned a rich jade-green and rose-violet, with much of the silvery brilliance from nearly two centuries ago still in evidence on the reverse. Extremely well struck in all areas of the design, with no appreciable surface blemishes. An important offering for the advanced type collector. (NGC ID# 2326, PCGS# 4264)
