1800 Draped Bust Half Dime. LM-1. Rarity-3. AU-55 (NGC). CAC. Medium gray surfaces with blue, gold, and lilac accents. As is the case with majority of federal silver coins issued during this era, some design features are boldly defined, while others show softness. Most of Liberty's tresses show bold definition, and the majority of the eagle's wing and tails feathers are sharp, but there's softness at the eagle's breast, and some of the stars above the eagle's head are faint or missing.
