    Vibrant 1859 Half Dime, PR66

    1859 H10C PR66 NGC. In 1859 the Philadelphia Mint experimented with moving the legend from the reverse to the obverse, possibly to make the design appear less crowded. With the exception of a few patterns, all 1859 half dimes have the legend on the reverse, while all 1860 issues have it on the obverse.
    This vibrantly toned Premium Gem has dusted red and gold patina in the margins that surrounds the blue and violet centers. The resplendent surfaces of this fully struck specimen appear pristine to the unaided eye and a loupe locates only a couple of nearly microscopic marks. The Mint had recently begun regular production of proofs, and only about 800 pieces were struck in that format. Census: 16 in 66, 8 finer (3/10).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 235P, PCGS# 4438)
