Lot Description
1846 H10C XF40 PCGS. From a low mintage of 27,000 pieces, Al Blythe calls the 1846 Seated Liberty half dime "One of the key dates in the series." The 1846 is rare in all grades today, and pieces in circulated grades are prized by even advanced collectors. The present coin is an attractive XF40 specimen, deeply toned in shades of ice-blue and golden-brown. The devices remain sharply detailed, with only light wear showing on the high points. Population: 6 in 40, 14 finer (8/10). Ex: Purchased from J.G. Macallister on November 7, 1944; Benson Collection Part II (Goldberg, 2/2002), lot 382.
