    Remarkable 1849-O Half Dime, MS66

    1849-O H10C MS66 NGC. The 1849-O is an elusive issue in all grades, with only 140,000 pieces originally produced. Breen, who simply called this issue "rare," suggested that some of this already low mintage may have actually been dated 1848. Half dime specialist Al Blythe went further by stating, "... specimens in higher grades (AU and above) are very scarce. Usually found in lower grades." In Mint State, Blythe rates the 1849-O as a low R.6. This extraordinary example has bright, satiny, untoned surfaces, and while it may not be fully struck in all areas, the silky-smooth surfaces more than make up for lack of complete highpoint detail. Census: 3 in 66, 0 finer (3/09).
