Lot Description
1860-O H10C MS67 S NGC. The single finest 1860-O half dime known to NGC, awarded the Star designation for added emphasis, and tied with just one PCGS-certified MS67 example (5/08). Each side of this delightful little jewel offers powerful luster and sparkling frost. The razor-sharp obverse shows delightful concentric bands of plum, blue-green, and mauve, while the reverse has splashes of peripheral toning around a silver-gray center. Simply spectacular visual appeal for this issue struck on the cusp of the Civil War, one of the best survivors out of fewer than 1.1 million pieces coined.
