    Rare V-3 1803 Small 8 Half Dime, XF40

    1803 H10C Small 8 XF40 PCGS. CAC. V-3, LM-1, R.6. The 1803 Small 8 half dime is one of the great unheralded rarities in U.S. numismatics. It is significantly rarer than the Large 8. PCGS has certified just 11 pieces in all grades, the lowest as AG3, and the single finest as MS63. The strike definition on this XF40 example is bold throughout, aside from minor bluntness on the bust truncation and the pair of clouds directly opposite. The dove-gray, golden-brown, and aqua-blue toning is both light and attractive. Lightly abraded for the grade, the overall appearance is pleasing, but to identify the piece for future researchers, we note a thin vertical mark in the hair beneath the E. Early silver specialists will certainly recognize the significance of the present opportunity. Population: 2 in 40, 3 finer (11/08).
