    Early and Rare 1842 Half Dime, PR64

    1842 H10C PR64 NGC. An exceptional early Seated proof half dime. Walter Breen, in his Encyclopedia of United States and Colonial Proof Coins, cited only seven known examples, and the NGC and PCGS total populations are 5 and 1, respectively. Still other sources claim a mintage of 8 pieces. Whatever the true figure, it is clear that this is an extreme rarity, and the example offered here is graded a respectable PR64. Violet-gold patina covers each side, and blue-green toning also appears within the wreath on the reverse. The strike is crisp, and the devices reveal few flaws, though a handful of hairlines and tiny contact marks are scattered in the fields. In light of the history and overall eye appeal of this piece, such minor troubles are forgivable and are unlikely to lessen anyone's appreciation of this diminutive silver proof.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 235A, PCGS# 4418)
