1834 Capped Bust Half Dime. PCGS graded MS-63. This choice coin is prooflike in the fields and is toned with magnificent deep gray, green, gold and blue. Minor handling marks from a higher grade, but certain to please. These dies produced proof examples, and this coin is from an early die state, so the dies retained some of their proof mirroring when this was struck, especially on the reverse. This one has enough mirror finish to possibly be a proof, so inspection recommended.
Estimated Value $500-UP.
From the Benson collection and purchased from J. G. Macallister in a large group of half dimes on November 7, 1944 for $80.00.

Realized $3,105
