1800 Draped Bust Half Dime. LM-3, V-2. Rarity-4. LIBEKTY. MS-62 (NGC).

BU 1800 LM-3 LIBEKTY Half Dime

The LIBEKTY Guide Book variety is not denoted on the NGC insert. This is the more obtainable die marriage of the 1800 LIBEKTY variety, although it is still scarce in an absolute sense. A very scarce Mint State example, the coin we offer here is boldly struck in all but a few isolated areas, where we note soft-to-blunt detail. Satiny in sheen, and quite smooth at the assigned grade level, both sides are dressed in slightly mottled toning of copper-gray, olive-gray and russet colors.
