    1860 H10C PR66 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Proof 1860 half dimes are scarcely seen this fine, with or without cameo contrast. Other than a touch of softness on the upper left portion of the wreath and the bowknot, the strike is sharp. Deeply mirrored fields reflect shades of lavender, gold, and sea-green toning, with no distracting marks. Eye appeal is outstanding. Population: 15 in 66 (2 in 66+), 5 finer. CAC: 6 in 66, 5 finer (8/20).(Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 235V, PCGS# 4443)

    Weight: 1.24 grams
