Description1805 H10C V-1, LM-1, R.4, VG8 NGC. CAC. Although less famous than its 1802 predecessor, the 1805 is another rare and low mintage date. The delivery of 15,600 pieces was the final half dime emission until 1829. The present example has a cream-white obverse. The reverse field is apricot-gold but the high points are stone-gray. Hair-thin marks are scattered but none are offensive. The peripheral stars and legends are distinct except for OF, which is softly defined due to its status opposite the bust tip.
