    1860 Transitional Half Dime, Judd-267
    MS64+, Smooth and Lustrous

    1860 H10C Transitional, Judd-267, Pollock-315, R.4, MS64+ PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Judd-267 and its 1859 counterpart, Judd-232, have been called "coins without a country" since the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA does not appear on either side. Technically, they are mules, pairing the Paquet hollow-stars obverse subtype (introduced in 1859) with the reverse of 1860. Since Judd-232 is a great rarity, Judd-267 is the sole readily collectible variety of the Transitional Seated half dime. As usual for Judd-267, a heavy die line extends northwest from the left end of Liberty's rock, and stars 4, 5, 9, and 10 are incompletely brought up, as they are opposite portions of the wreath. This delightful near-Gem exhibits moderate golden-brown toning near the rims, and has an undisturbed and attractive appearance. Population: 24 in 64 (2 in 64+), 27 finer (9/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2346, PCGS# 4373)

    Weight: 1.24 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
