1796 H10c PCGS AU53 (LIKERTY)

DLRC #: 849279 // PCGS #: 94254

We've offered several of this popular variety in the past, and while this piece may not be the highest graded, it is without a doubt the prettiest one we've ever offered for sale. Gorgeous rainbow tones cover both sides of the piece and the coin simply stands out for having phenomenal eye appeal. Scarce and desirable as an early half dime with the draped bust obverse and small eagle reverse. A flaw in the B of LIBERTY resulted in the word LIKERTY.
