    Superb 1837 Seated Half Dime, MS67 ★ Prooflike

    1837 H10C Large Date (Curl Top 1) MS67 ★ Prooflike NGC. A middle die state, some of the repunching on the date is still evident below all four digits. A high mintage (for the era--1.4 million pieces were produced), first-year issue, the 1837 seems to have been saved in significant numbers. As such, neither circulated nor Mint State type collectors should have any difficulty locating a suitable example in today's market. Precious few survivors, however, are close enough to perfection to grade finer than MS66 at NGC or PCGS. This is just such a coin, and the sharply impressed features are silent on the subject of grade-limiting abrasions. As impressive as these features are, they are not the first that greet the viewer. That distinction belongs to a rich endowment of purple-copper and cobalt-blue toning at the left portion of the obverse. The reverse exhibits a ring of deep copper-red color with blue accents, and the surfaces are reflective indicating an early strike. This is a coin that no high quality type set should be without. NGC and PCGS combined report 16 coins in MS67, and there are only two MS68 NGC examples finer (11/04).(#4311) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 232M, PCGS# 4311)
