    1844-O Half Dime, MS64
    Finest Certified at NGC

    1844-O H10C MS64 NGC. V-1. Blue-green shading covers the figure of Liberty on this near-Gem half dime. The richly colored center gives way to a ring of burgundy above the stars and below the date. The head is full and the star centers -- a perennial stumbling block at the New Orleans Mint -- are needle-sharp. A stray mark at the left (facing) wrist precludes the Gem designation. The reverse is gray, with silver highlights in the protected areas.

    Variety: V-1, with a Medium O mintmark.

    Population Data (8/15): NGC reports only this single coin in MS64 and none graded higher. PCGS accounts for three in MS64 and a single MS65+ finer (which may/may not be the Eliasberg piece discussed below).

    Heritage Commentary: This MS64 NGC example compares favorably with the MS65 PCGS-CAC ex: Eliasberg coin, which Gene Gardner also acquired. While the MS65 coin exhibits substantial eye appeal, the present example represents a strong strike for the issue. Which is better? Gardner solved the problem by procuring both coins, and we heartily recommend our bidders consider the same strategy. The Eliasberg coin brought $21,150 as lot 98188 in our Gardner Part II Signature (Heritage, 10/2014).

    Provenance: Purchased from Benchmark Ventures (2/2003).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2336, PCGS# 4334)

    Weight: 1.34 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
