Lot Description
1867 H10C MS66 S NGC. A brilliant, moderately prooflike, and high grade example. A pair of faint lines near the D in DIME are from the planchet prior to the strike. At least four sets of clash marks are evident. Only 8,000 pieces were struck, since fractional currency and Gresham's Law combined to drive out silver coin from circulation. As of (5/13), NGC has bestowed a Star designation on only two business strike 1867 half dimes, the present lot and an MS65 example.
