Description

1800 Draped Bust Half Dime. LM-1, V-1. Rarity-3. MS-64 (PCGS). Secure Holder.

Richly Original Near-Gem 1800 LM-1 Half Dime

Both the obverse and reverse of this piece are splashed with well-blended patina in steel-gray and olive-copper colors. Liberty's bust and the upper-right reverse are softly defined due to die opposition, but the overall strike is quite sharp and superior for a product of the early United States Mint. Much of Liberty's hair and the eagle's plumage, in fact, is intricately defined. Lustrous and minimally marked--a coin that is knocking on the door of an even higher grade.
    LM-1 is the most readily obtainable of the four-known die marriages of this issue. This makes examples popular for type purposes, especially since the 1800 is the premier date in the Draped Bust, Large Eagle Half Dime series.

PCGS#: 4264
