Lot Description
1863-S H10C MS65 PCGS. CAC. The 1863 Philadelphia half dimes are a series key given their low mintage of 14,000 business strikes, but the 1863-S half dimes were only struck to the extent of 100,000 pieces, and today they are elusive as well in higher grade. This Gem is close to a full strike for this well-produced issue, with mottled gold, purplish-gray, and silver patina heavier on the obverse. Population: 9 in 65, 1 finer (9/11).
