1845 Seated Half Dime, PR65
1845 H10C PR65 NGC. CAC. R.7. The obverse has a tiny raised
die chip between adjacent points of stars 9 and 10, with another
near the top outside point of star 12. There is no evidence of date
repunching, although the fields behind the closely spaced 845
appear slightly raised. The 1 is comparatively distant from the 8.
The exquisite surface shows nearly imperceptible hairlines. The
reverse has a tiny lint mark just right of the lower part of the F
in OF, with no other imperfections. The reverse die has well-formed
letters with no doubling or other anomalies. An impressive Gem with
mirrored fields shining through beautiful blue, ivory, and
iridescent toning. In our January 2008 sale of the Kaufman
Collection, we presented a roster of 1845 proof half dimes that
enumerated seven specimens. The Newman coin was unrecorded there,
and represents an eighth known example, tied for third finest.

A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
