Elusive in both circulated and Mint State grades -- proofs of this date are actually much more common in today's market -- the business strike 1866 half dime is a low mintage affair with a mere 10,000 pieces produced. As a smooth, high end Gem, this satiny beauty ranks among the finest certified. It is a brilliant coin that is also sharply struck from the rims to the centers. A find for the advanced collector of Seated Liberty coinage.
