Lot Description
1845 H10C MS67 NGC. This is equal to the finest certified examples of this date. The strike is quite sharp, perhaps full, with complete lines in the obverse stars, strong hair definition, and full details on nearly every leaf. The fields are reflective, especially on the obverse, with satiny luster throughout. Each side has delightfully intermingled toning. The obverse is mostly blue and lilac with some amber and green highlights. The reverse is similar with less lilac color. This is one of the common issues from this decade, and actually has the highest overall population of any date in the 1840s. At the same time, this population is only a small portion of the Philadelphia Mint issues from the late 1850s. This offering represents an important opportunity to acquire a Superb Gem quality example of a scarce date at only a modest premium above the common issues. Population: 2 in 67, 0 finer (1/05).
