    1801 Half Dime, LM-2, AU58
    V-2 / Late Die State of V-1
    Very Rare in High Grades

    1801 H10C V-1 and V-2, LM-2, R.4, AU58 PCGS. 30th Anniversary Green Label Holder. Although Valentine suggested two varieties for the 1801 half dime, researchers have concluded within the past 25 years that V-1 and V-2 are, in fact, different states of the same die. In an article entitled "1801 Half Dimes Revisited," published in Volume 11, Issue 3 of the John Reich Journal, Ed Price and Jules Reiver identify eight different die states. This nearly Uncirculated example corresponds to their Die State g, with die crumbling from RT to star 12 and either file marks or clash marks extending from the top of Liberty's hair.

    Gorgeous original surfaces are richly toned in golden-orange, steel-blue, and violet patina. Both sides are well-struck with varying areas of incompleteness, but evidence of actual rub is practically indiscernible, limited to the cheek and shoulder. The 1801 is a very rare issue in high grades. This lot should attract considerable attention. Population (all varieties): 3 in 58, 7 finer (6/17). (NGC ID# 2327, Variety PCGS# 38606, Base PCGS# 4267)
