Description

1800 Draped Bust Half Dime. LM-3. Rarity-4. LIBEKTY. MS-62 (PCGS).

Lustrous Mint State-62 (PCGS) 1800 LIBEKTY Draped Bust Half Dime

Entirely bright silver with lustrous fields and solid eye appeal for an early silver coin of this era. The strike is uncommonly bold, and especially noticeable on Liberty's curls where all but a couple near her ear are strongly defined. Similar on the reverse where the eagle's feathers are sharp on all but the upper right wing where opposite Liberty's bust. Clean surfaces too, with a strong loupe needed to find more than scattered light nicks. For identification there is a flurry of marks on the inside of star six above Liberty's ribbon. Later die state with a few raised lumps on the obverse near the first star, and a long line of broken lumps up from the 8 into Liberty's hair, these caused by some impact with the die that further damaged the reverse near the eagle's head and below the ribbon, that or the die simply sunk in that area as more and more coins were struck. The reverse die was rotated about 30 degrees counter clockwise when struck. An appealing and attractive coin that any type or variety specialist will be proud to own.
