    Description

    Census Level 1803 V-3, LM-1 Half Dime, MS61
    Remarkable Small 8 Example

    1803 H10C Small 8 MS61 NGC. V-3, LM-1, R.6. This rare variety is difficult to locate in grades above VF, according to Logan and McCloskey. Our auction database lists 35 appearances of this variety over the last 25 years, and only 11 of those are for coins that are XF or better. This piece is far finer than any that we have handled. The previous top piece appeared in our January 2006 sale of the Jules Reiver Collection, and that coin was NGC certified AU50. While we hesitate to suggest that the present specimen is the finest known; we are unaware of any better examples although the PCGS population report claims an MS63. While typically weak on the drapery and the opposing reverse, it has good luster with mottled olive and iridescent surfaces. A few minor marks are consistent with the grade. NGC has certified two examples of the 1803 Small 8 variety, the other coin graded AU55.
    From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 2329, PCGS# 4270)
