1835 Half Dime Capped Bust Large Date PCGS MS66 (CAC)
To us, these teenie GEMs have always been a wonder. How in the world does a coin like this manage to remain pristine for 188 years?
Near flawless surfaces are semi satiny and are smooth. Even using a strong glass you can’t find ANY serious imperfections of ANY size, ANY where. A full booming luster does add to the brilliant white color. Miss Liberty and the details are frosty and have sharp strikes. The eye appeal is fantastic!
PCGS 26, NGC 2, CAC 8. PCGS has graded only 3 in MS66+. The last PCGS CAC example to sell in auction brought $5,200.00 08/2022. There obviously is a heavy regrade out there distorting the pops. Opportunity knocks loud if you love Bust Half Dimes!
