1800 Draped Bust Half Dime. NGC graded Double Struck Rotated in Collar Mint Error MS-63. Lovely blue and gold toning that is deepest on the left side of the obverse where the color descends to almost iridescent qualities of steel blue or gunmetal color. An intriguing striking error, the mint in this period was sometimes inconsistent with its quality control procedures, letting out into the streams of commerce oddities that might otherwise have been returned for melting and recoinage. The present example is carefully struck and just as carefully graded by NGC. Pop of 3 with 20 finer.
Estimated Value $11,000 - 13,000.

Realized $16,100
