1853-O H10C No Arrows AU50 Certification #38178693, PCGS #4352

Expert Comments

Ron Guth

In a survey of the members of the Liberty Seated Collectors Club, published in the March 2008 issue of the Gobrecht Journal, the 1853-O No Arrows Half Dime was ranked eighth among the Ten Greatest New Orleans Seated Coins: "This is the only collectible 1853 No Arrows coin from the New Orleans mint.  It is rare, particularylly in high grade and most of the available pieces have very weak dates.  In lower grades the date is often very difficult to read.  Even the Eliasberg specimen that was graded MS-64 when it sold at auction in May 1996 had weak digits in the date.  None of the 73 respondents placed this issue at the top of their list but 75% of the members placed it among their top ten coins."
