DESCRIPTION Sedately Beautiful Superb Gem 1831 Half DimeNearly Finest Certified By PCGS1831 Capped Bust Half Dime. Logan McCloskey-6. Rarity-1. Mint State-67 (PCGS). CAC.
Sedately beautiful frosty surfaces show opalescent gold with hints of palest violet and faintest blue. A finely struck gem, minutely detailed despite evidence of a clash mark and a scattering of infinitesimal reverse die cracks, each described by Logan and McCloskey in exacting fashion. The eye appeal is connoisseur quality and the preservation is equal to the grade, with only a single tiny contact point on the cheek seen under scrutiny. One of the very finest survivors of this date and variety.PCGS# 38661
