    Outstanding, Toned PR65 1860 Gold Label Half Dime

    1860 H10C Seated Half Dime PR65 NGC. CAC (Gold Label). Similar to the three cent silver, 1,000 proofs were struck but only 535+ are believed to have survived after melting at year's end. This year marked the beginning of a new design for the half dime and dime, and proofs are a significant acquisition for type collectors. Close examination of this piece reveals why it merits a gold CAC sticker. The surfaces are essentially perfect, and frankly the coin appears undergraded. Even beneath the golden-rose and cobalt-blue toning on each side, there is a noticeable cameo contrast--while probably not strong enough to merit designation as such, it certainly adds an element of eye appeal.(Registry values: P2)

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