V-2, LM-13. (R-3).

Capped Bust half dimes were made from 1829 through 1837. None of the individual dates are especially scarce but in Gem Uncirculated it is my feeling that this is a highly undervalued type.

This is a lovely Gem with natural silvery surfaces which are accentuated by splashes of deeper reddish-gold pastels at the upper obverse and reverse. The strike is razor sharp and the surfaces show just a few light marks which are difficult to see without strong magnification. A semi-circular die crack begins at star six, extends through the cap and resumes in the space between stars seven and eight.

The last two auction records for this date in PCGS MS65 are $2,086 and $2,350 in 2012 but both were non-CAC and not especially high end for the grade.

At less than $3,000, a Gem silver coin which is over 180 years old seems like great value to me.

CAC has approved six in this grade with 10 finer.
