    Toned Gem Proof 1834 Half Dime, V-4, LM-4

    1834 H10C PR65 NGC. V-4, LM-4, R.6 as proof. Struck from the dies in the same state as the PR66 Cameo NGC coin in the present sale, and the other pieces described in that lot. Notably, the third stroke in the M in AMERICA is present, and the top of the N in UNITED is unfilled. Breen wrote in his 1989 revision of the Proof Encyclopedia that about 15 separate examples appear to survive from among 50 or so auction appearances during the previous 50 years, an estimate that the certified population data support.
    The present piece shows brilliantly mirrored fields and recesses (even in the incuse LIBERTY) on the figure's headband, with mottled sea-green, pink, gold, and copper patina. The strike is close to full, although some light die striations or roller marks appear on Liberty's cheek. A prominent lint mark in the reverse field, near the eagle's beak, will help to pedigree this piece in future, but there is little mentionable contact apparent. Census: four in 65, none finer at NGC, save for the PR66 Cameo also in the present offering (3/09).
    From The Scottsville Collection of Proof Bust Coinage. (NGC ID# 232L, PCGS# 4297)
