    1860 Transitional Half Dime, Judd-267, MS65
    'Coin Without a Country'

    1860 H10C Transitional MS65 NGC. Judd-267, Pollock-315, R.4. This "nationless" coin was one of two mule types struck under Mint Director James Ross Snowden as trading material to enhance the Mint Collection. It combines the Stars Obverse design of 1859 with the reverse die from 1860, at the time that UNITED STATES OF AMERICA was being moved to the obverse -- hence, "coin without a country." This silver-white, untoned Gem example is free of singular marks but softly struck on some of the upper obverse stars and Liberty's head on the obverse, and correspondingly on portions of the lower reverse wreath. Census: 15 in 65, 12 finer (1/14).
    From the collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation. (NGC ID# 2346, PCGS# 4373)
