    1829 Half Dime, V-3, LM-2, PR65 Cameo
    The Eliasberg Specimen

    1829 H10C PR65 Cameo PCGS. CAC. V-3, LM-2, R.7 as a proof. Ex: Eliasberg. The year 1829 marked multiple milestones for the U.S. Mint, including its second Mint Building and the introduction of close-collar technology which refined the facility's output. Proofs were struck for the Second Mint Building cornerstone and distribution to important persons. This Gem proof with strong contrast is richly toned yet thoroughly Cameo-worthy. The fields are reflective under gold-orange outer patina with sea-green and blue along much of the margins. A marvelously appealing representative of one of the few well-documented early proof issues bearing one of the most famous pedigrees in all of numismatics.
    Ex: Eliasberg Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 908.
    From The Greensboro Collection, Part V.
