Lot Description
1846 H10C AU58 NGC. Among the half dimes in the present sale, this is one of the most important opportunities. Although it is hardly the most valuable example, it very well may be the rarest. Just 27,000 half dimes of this date were produced, the fifth lowest mintage of any Liberty Seated half dime (discounting the unique 1870-S issue), and the 10th lowest mintage of any date half dime from 1794 to 1873. This is a deeply toned example with nearly full underlying luster. The surfaces are excellent with only a few scattered marks. Somewhat weakly struck as nearly always. Population: 3 in 58, 1 finer (1/05).
