*NEW* Cert. 08452850 Wow!! An original early half dime showing a solid, even strike and wear, with natural medium silvery gray patina, just the way it is supposed to look. These are few and far between. As the great majority of PCGS and NGC certified early half dimes are faaaaaarrrrrr from original, price guides are weak. This is the real deal at just a few percent over CU Guide value.
*ON HOLD - NEW* An original beauty that is better than many of the type floating around in MS65 holders. Well struck with only a couple tiny marks between the bust and date. Full luster on a lovely blend of rose and blue toning.
*ON HOLD - NEW* Cert. 25304398 Of only 5-6 known proofs, this specimen is Pop: 1 in CAMEO, none lower or higher, with one grading event at PR65 (I have reason to believe it’s the same coin, but not verifiable). OMG!!! What a stunning early proof. Sparkling thick white CAMEO is surrounded by gorgeous rose and blue patina on bright, fully reflective fields. A stunner and real value.
I love this type and look at every available coin at every show, buying maybe 2 or three a year. As usual, I reject the great majority, but this one was a winner. Very sharply struck on both sides, a trait that separates it from most. Basically free of marks and mostly brilliant with light silvery patina overall with some deep blue peripheral toning front and back. Finished with full, original mint luster.
A gorgeous little jewel. Absolute needle sharp strike front and back with light violet rose patina going to deeper blue at the peripheries on both sides, and finished with full glowing luster. Awesome eye-appeal.
Cert. 31376100 A pleasing original Gem with a full, sharp strike, immaculate surfaces and finished with lovely light silvery rose patina on fully lustrous surfaces. A lovely example of this popular three-year type.
*ON HOLD - NEW* Fully struck and basically flawless, this lovely little original shows very light silvery-rose-blue patina evenly overlaying both sides. Finished with bright, full luster. Tip-top of the grade and a pleasure to behold.
*NEW* Cert. 82625545 A little jewel, full struck with absolutely complete Liberty head detail, often lacking on this type. Light silvery rose patina overall going to deeper bluish patina at the peripheries. Superb surfaces and glowing luster. Great “Legend Obverse” type coin.
A little Gem showing a needle sharp strike front and back and finished with beautiful aqua-blue and rose toning on both sides. Fully lustrous with superb Eye-appeal. Great type coin for the toning enthusiast
