    1854 Arrows Half Dime
    Peripherally Toned MS67+
    Sole Finest at PCGS
    From the Gardner Collection

    1854 H10C Arrows MS67+ PCGS. CAC. V-2. All numerals of the date touch the base of the rock, the pendant is centered over the 5, and the shield points to the top of the 1. Both dies are clashes and the reverse has a heavy die crack through the left side of the C in AMERICA. Mottled gunmetal-gray and reddish-brown toning at the margins is more extensive and deeper on the obverse of this well-struck Superb Gem. Both sides have been well cared for. Walter Breen, writing in 1988, suggested that many of the 1854 Arrows dimes were struck from old tenor coins returned to Philadelphia from New Orleans late in 1853. Breen did not provide a source for that statement.
