1829 Capped Bust Half Dime. . Val-12. NGC graded Proof 64. After 24 years half dime production resumed in 1829, and several proofs were struck from various dies. This particular variety is not reported in Breen's Encyclopedia on Proofs, but is noted in the recent Logan-McCloskey variety reference work as being represented by proof and business strike coins. Toned a very deep blue in color with clean surfaces and excellent eye appeal. Identifiable by a small lint mark that extends up from the front tip of the headband curling back above the cap towards the rim. This one did not come with a pedigree, and we've found these early proofs extremely difficult to trace to prior sales, as photography and printing have both advanced substantially, as well as values, in the last few decades. In NGC holder #259896-015.
Estimated Value $8,000 - 10,000.
Possibly one of 2 offered in Heritage's FUN sale, 1/99:6382, 6383.

Realized $8,683
