Lot Description
1838 H10C Small Stars MS63 NGC. Described by NGC as a No Drapery piece, with no mention of the Small Stars feature. This is a late die state with heavy clash marks in the fields, and severe die rust on the devices. Heavy clash marks at Liberty's elbow give the appearance of partial drapery, similar to the dime variety of this date. The surfaces are fully lustrous with exceptional blue, lilac, and rose toning over pale gold surfaces. From The Al Blythe Collection of Half Dimes.
