1829 Capped Bust Half Dime. PCGS graded AU-58. This is a very scarce die variety that is seldom available in any grade. Note that this is an early die state and the crack through the third and fourth star has barely started. Minor circulation marks in the fields, and delightful deep blue around the rims fading to bright gold at the centers. Lustrous and well preserved, a true variety collector will certainly appreciate the condition and rarity of this coin. Currently in the top half dozen known of the variety, and well worth a premium as such.
Estimated Value $150 - 200.
From the Benson collection and purchased April 3, 1944 from James G. Macallister as Uncirculated for $1.50.

Realized $633
