    1860 'Transitional' Half Dime, MS66
    Judd-267, Remarkably Toned

    1860 H10C Transitional MS66 PCGS. CAC. Judd-267, Pollock-315, R.4. This is the well-known "coin without a country" half dime, also known as a "transitional" variety, although it was a rarity created for the coin trade by Mint Director Snowden. On the regular issue 1860, the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA was moved from the reverse to the obverse. Judd-267 pairs the former obverse and new reverse, omitting the country name. The fields display heavy die striations and, of course, the diagnostic die scratch is present from the back of the rock to the nearby denticles. Weakly defined, as usually seen, each side shows attractive light pastel iridescence. (NGC ID# 2346, PCGS# 4373)

    Weight: 1.24 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
