Lot Description
1838-O H10C No Stars MS64 NGC. The 1838-O half dime marked the first year of production for the New Orleans Mint and was also the only No Stars five cent issue produced by that facility; paradoxically, all other half dimes struck that year (namely, those made in Philadelphia) are of the With Stars variety. This attractive Choice piece offers strong, pleasing luster beneath rose, violet, and blue tints that are slightly deeper on the reverse. Overall definition is crisp for the issue, and eye appeal is high. A handful of wispy abrasions in the obverse fields account for the grade. Census: 4 in 64, 1 finer (6/12).
