Lot Description
1840 Seated Liberty Half Dime. Drapery. MS-65 (NGC). The premier P-mint Half Dime of the Drapery type, the 1840 is also a slightly scarcer issue even in circulated grades. Gems such as the coin we are offering here are decidedly rare from a condition standpoint and can be very challenging to acquire. Satiny and smooth, both sides are adorned with delicate iridescent-pink toning. A blush of slightly warmer color is noted for the lower-right obverse border, but not even close inspection calls forth a detracting abrasion. Sharply struck.
