PCGS AU58. David Perkins Description: This Flowing Hair Half Dime has a nice look to it. On this die marriage the obverse die clashed early. This example shows these extensive clash marks. It is toned a light to medium silver-gray on the obverse while the reverse is medium gray and gold with some darker gray and blue mixed in. There are some scattered marks seen under the toning with a glass. The PCGS price for an AU58 coin is $9,250. Coin World Trends shows a price of $8,750 for an AU55 and $11,000 for a MS60 example. Heritage Auctions Description (Auction #1217 - Long Beach, Lot #3062, Jan/Feb 2015): 1795 Half Dime, V-4, LM-10, AU58 Sharp Flowing Hair Type Coin 1795 H10C V-4, LM-10, R.3, AU58 PCGS. Heavily clashed, but struck before the rim cud develops above the TY in LIBERTY. The earlier crack in that area is present. This piece is an ideal type coin, showing sharp detail and only a trace of friction over the high points. Pale golden-gray toning yields deeper hues of olive and blended lavender in the margins. A few faint adjustment marks are detectable in the central reverse. (NGC ID# 22ZV, Variety PCGS# 38594, Base PCGS# 4251)

A tiny mintage of 24,000 coins makes the 1881 dime a better date in the Seated series, and Gerry Fortin rates the issue R.5 in Mint State. Coins can be located through mid-Uncirculated grades with some searching, but the 1881 is a major rarity in this remarkable grade. Each side of this Superb Gem is frosty and untoned. As usual, Liberty's head shows a touch of unimportant softness, but the remaining devices are boldly rendered.

PCGS MS64+ Kagins's Auction Description: Choice Mint State + 1875-S Twenty-Cents 1875-S Twenty-Cents Date in Dentils, “$” Mintmark Variety. MS-64+ PCGS. Here is a coin that is about as pleasing an example of the date and grade combination as you are apt to see. The frosted surfaces glow with lively cartwheel activity that supports pale champagne-gold iridescence throughout. The strike is sharp in all the devices, obverse and reverse, which adds greatly to the overall charm. Formerly housed in a NGC MS-65 holder; that label is taped to the PCGS holder. (There are those in today’s hobby who prefer a pleasing MS-64+ over a routine MS-65 coin, seeing better value with strong similarity in quality at the “64+” level.) Choice no matter how you view the grade, and worth strong bidder support. PCGS #5298

The 8 is much too high in the date, and a tiny extra tine of metal appears in the field near star 12. The reverse shows the usual die crack from the rim above S to OF to the wing tip to the rim above the first A in AMERICA. The obverse lacks the usually seen die crack through the 9 in the date, and as such may prove to be a prize for die-state collectors. Although the strike is slightly uneven, this piece has lustrous silver-gold surfaces with lots of vibrancy and appeal.

The 1860-O is one of the only No Motto Seated dollar issues that is usually affordable in Mint State, much to the advantage of budget-conscious type collectors. The present coin displays a touch of golden toning around the rims, but is otherwise brilliant -- and not in a bright, dipped-out sense, but in a vibrant, mint-fresh sense. The motifs are sharp and frosty and the fields emit semiprooflike reflectivity. A few light abrasions are hardly noticed as the luster cartwheels around each side.
