    Very Rare Choice Proof V-12 1829 Half Dime

    1829 H10C PR64 NGC. V-12, LM-13, R.7 as a proof. NGC has certified 10 proof 1829 half dimes, none with an indication of Valentine number. A perusal of past auction appearances lists proof V-2, V-3, and V-7 examples in NGC and PCGS holders. No other proof V-12 examples were found. The present piece is identifiable by a backward S lintmark in front of the cap, and a second lintmark is adjacent to the lowest leaf pair. It was described as possibly unique as a V-12 proof in two different auctions, Heritage 8/96 and Bowers and Merena 8/99. Fully struck and nicely mirrored with light to medium aqua-blue and rose toning. Census: 6 in 64, 2 finer (10/06).
    Ex: Denver ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/96), lot 6901; Long Beach Connoisseur Collection (Bowers and Merena, 8/99), lot 78; Benson Collection, Part Two (Ira and Larry Goldberg, 2/02), lot 347.
    From The Jones Beach Collection.

    Due completely to Heritage's thoroughly diligent and professional management and promotion of the collection, the faraday Collection stirred national attention among numismatists and the auction results brought a gross value greater than that last estimated by the experienced collector.
