    Mint State 1801 Half Dime, V-1/2, LM-2
    Intriguing Early Issue

    1801 H10C MS61 NGC. V-1/2, LM-2, R.4. The 1801 is an intriguing date among the early half dimes. Die cracks and breaks seem to appear and disappear, die marriages that seem to be different are actually the same, and high-quality examples are extremely rare. The V-1/2, LM-2 die pairing is attributed by the distant LIB with stars 1-3 close, while the reverse shows a leaf distant from the last A but joined to the center of the C. Valentine called this as both V-1 and V-2.
    This is a fully lustrous Mint State beauty accented by light gold toning over silver-gray surfaces. The central details are sharp, but peripheral weakness is caused by obverse die breaks, curving up through the date and down through LIB. A dark lamination on the reverse is caused by inclusions in the planchet. Census: 3 in 61, 3 finer (11/11).(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 2327, PCGS# 4267)
