Description

1800 Draped Bust Half Dime. LM-1. Rarity-3. MS-63+ (PCGS).

Choice Mint State 1800 Draped Bust Half Dime

Pleasing quality with toning that shows as golden-gray with gunmetal traces as well. The strike is sharp on the tiny obverse stars and most of Liberty's curls, but a few of the uppermost are soft as commonly seen. For the reverse the eagle displays his intricate wing feathers and most of the veins in the tiny leaves in the branch, confirming a reasonably sharp strike. No adjustment marks are seen and the surfaces have minimal signs of handling. An important offering for the type collector as so few of these early Draped Bust half dimes survive in high grade, with Mint State pieces seeing the strongest demand when offered.
