    1856-O Half Dime, MS65
    Condition Census Example

    1856-O H10C MS65 PCGS. V-2. Ex: Eliasberg. This half dime exhibits antique-gray and light brown on the obverse, while the reverse features more intense gray toning with silver streaks running across the surface. Luster penetrates the color throughout and adds to the eye appeal of the Gem example. Certified in a green-label holder.

    Variety: V-2. A faint crack runs through the stars 11 to 13, and the lower loop of 5 in the date is closed.

    Population Data (8/15): PCGS accounts for two in MS65 and three in MS66 (one MS66+). NGC enumerates six MS65 and three MS66 (two MS66+) finer.

    Heritage Commentary: A finer provenance for a Liberty Seated coin can hardly be imagined -- between the Eliasberg and Gardner collections nearly every coin in the series is represented in the highest condition.

    Provenance: Eliasberg Collection (Bowers & Merena, 5/1996), lot 998; purchased from Bowers & Merena (8/2002).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 233R, PCGS# 4364)

    Weight: 1.24 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
