1800 Draped Bust Half Dime. PCGS graded AU-58. This one is nearly mint state, and has deep blue toning with bright silver at the center in the shape of an eye on both sides. The surfaces are clean, with no problem marks or blemishes. One tiny scrape past the last A of AMERICA and another touching the top two arrowhead into the field above will serve to identify this stunning coin. Boldly struck and well balanced, the dies show minor clash marks, and the luster is abundant throughout. Not a particularly rare coin, but certain to please the specialist in early silver. A lot of flash for the cash.
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,500.
From the Benson collection and probably purchased in the 1940s.

Realized $6,900
