    1872 Half Dime, PR67+ Deep Cameo
    The Sole Finest at PCGS

    1872 H10C PR67+ Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Proof half dime coinage in 1872 amounted to 950 pieces, a fairly substantial total for the series. Nonetheless, the mintage does not translate into the date being available in high grade today. In fact, the 1872 proof is rare finer than PR65.

    This issue is also a rarity with strong field-device contrast. PCGS has certified just five Deep Cameo examples in all grades combined, of which the present coin is the sole finest. This piece is also unsurpassed any Cameo or non-Cameo example at that service (8/20). It is fully struck and essentially brilliant, showing dramatic contrast between the liquidlike fields and frosted devices. The eye appeal drips from this coin, and the level of preservation is captivating. CAC: 1 in 67, 0 finer (9/20).(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2369, PCGS# 94455)

    Weight: 1.24 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
