1800 Draped Bust Half Dime. "LIBEKTY" error. PCGS graded AU-55. Deep blue, green and yellow toning on the obverse, lighter on the reverse, where the coin is white save for peripheral blue shades. Nicely struck by the dies, with full stars and curls on the obverse, and the usual die flaw on the reverse below the eagle's beak. Minor hairlines from handling and circulation, with a faint cluster left of the date. Excellent luster and surfaces, and worth a strong bid for the colorful toning and curious broken "R" punch on the obverse.
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,500.
From the Benson collection and probably purchased in the 1940s.

Realized $5,750
