    1853-O Seated Liberty Half Dime, MS65
    Extraordinary No Arrows Example, Ex: Gardner

    1853-O H10C No Arrows MS65 PCGS. CAC. The lustrous surfaces of this Gem display soft golden-tan and violet patina that assumes slightly deeper hues on the reverse. The design elements are sharply struck, including Liberty's head and foot, the shield, the star radials, and the wreath. The date digits 18 are soft, but even these elements are better-defined than typically seen on this issue. A few minute marks on the left (facing) shoulder are within the parameters of the grade and serve to identify the coin.

    As with the 1853 No Arrows half dime, most of the 1853-O was melted. This date is very scarce in circulated grades and extremely rare in Mint State. Population: 2 in 65 (1 in 65+), 0 finer. CAC: 2 in 65, 0 finer (6/16).
    Purchased by Eugene Gardner from Jason Carter (2/2003); Gardner Collection, Part II (Heritage, 10/2014), lot 98194.(Registry values: N7079)
