H.10 1849/8 PCGS MS67+
How in the world did this coin survive over 166 years in such a remarkable state of preservation? We unhesitatingly rank this coin ULTRA HIGH END! Had it been graded MS68, we probably would not flinch. We have handled the long MS68 of this date (in the Law/Simpson set we built). This coin really IS that close. Outrageous surfaces are both satiny and have slight semi-prooflike tendencies. There is not a single mark to be found-even if using a microscope! Both sides enjoy a lavish mix of totally original and beautiful shades of blue/pale green/pale champagne/pewter colors. Miss Liberty and the details are frosty and have crisp sharp strikes. You do not need a glass to see the over date. The eye appeal is spectacular! PCGS 5, NGC 4, CAC 2. This is the ONLY PCGS MS67+. PCGS has graded one higher-that coin is impounded in the Law/Simpson set we built. We also know for a fact, this coin offered here is totally fresh to the market and has never been sold at auction. The current Collectors universe Value is $10,000.00-which seems a bit low. We paid $35,000.00 for the MS68! Regardless, if you are building a killer Half Dime set, this is a “must have”.
