    1847 H10C MS66 Prooflike NGC. V-4. At first glance, this Premium Gem has every appearance of a proof. The fields are fully mirrored and faintly striated, and the devices are sharp and frosted. Daniel W. Valentine (1931) identified five die varieties of the 1847 half dime, with V-2 being designated the proof die. Today, the grading services have certified V-1 and V-2 coins as proofs. This coin appears to match the V-4 diagnostics listed in Valentine. While we are not aware of a V-4 coin being certified as a proof, we are aware of at least two semiprooflike examples of this variety, plus this deeply mirrored example. Other than a hint of gold around the borders, this piece is brilliant and shows modest cameo contrast. It is the sole example certified as Prooflike by NGC (4/18).
