1840 Seated Liberty Half Dime. No Drapery. AU-58+ (PCGS). The single-finest circulated example of this issue currently known to PCGS, this originally toned beauty is sure to be of keen interest to Registry Set collectors. The obverse is peripherally toned in vivid cobalt-blue and reddish-apricot colors, while the reverse is more extensively patinated in a blend of blue-gray, steel-gray and golden-rose shades.
