(5a) Seated Half Dime 1859 NGC PF 63
1859 H10C PR63 NGC. Both 1 and 9 are repunched at the base. A small planchet flaw captures and slightly bends the lower edges of 5. Amber and champagne-gray coloration adorns the sharply struck surfaces, as a few stray hairlines limit the grade assessment of the piece. A one-year type coin that features hollow-centered stars on the obverse and a slightly modified figure of Liberty. From a mintage of 800 proofs, a relatively small number of which still survive.
