1830 Capped Bust Half Dime. . LM-14, Valentine-1, R-3. PCGS graded MS-67. Old green holder. A hint of light tone but mostly white. Superb! From center to periphery the intense radiant frosted luster glows. A meticulous strike on every device is what collectors strive for in a Capped Bust half dime, and this coin, unlike those of other die varieties that don't quite make the "full" grade due to overuse of the dies, is extra crisp, twice as sharp as an average specimen. For that reason, the numerical condition is exact. Pop 6; 1 in MS-68. (PCGS # 4277) .

A total of 14 die marriages are known for the half dime coinage dated 1830. This coinage was accomplished through the use of six obverse and eight reverse dies. Total mintage for the year was 1,240,000 coins, however, many of these were coins dated 1829, while other examples dated 1830 were actually struck in 1831. In fact, one marriage dated 1830 was minted after all 1831 coins were struck. The reverse of this variety has STATES farther to the right in relation to the scroll than any other variety of the year.
Estimated Value $10,000 - 11,000.

Realized $9,775
