Lot Description
1844-O H10C MS62 PCGS. V-2. Small O. Inverted reverse with medal-turn alignment. This is one of the rarities in the half dime series, and it is seldom found so fine. Only the 1846 and 1853-O No Arrows issues are more highly prized by specialists. Some design weakness is noted on both sides, although most of the die work is quite sharply delineated, especially for a product of the New Orleans Mint. The Valentine-2 variety, with its small mintmark, is often found with the rotated reverse as on the present example. This is a lovely coin with satiny fields beneath medium gray-rose and coral-tan toning. The surfaces have minor blemishes as expected, but no individually distracting marks. Population: 3 in 62, 3 finer (7/06).
