Choice $685 Frosted Luster, Light Gray Patina, Choice Surfaces, Crazy Joe Collection. Consignor Buyout - Price Reduction! Another conservatively graded 1830 Capped Bust half dime that is certain to please the new owner. The granular frosted luster is big and bold during initial bright light review along with decent cartwheel action. The field on both sides are essentially unabraded with a single tiny contact point on the upper cheek that is visible on the image. The originality is validated by the darker copper-gold on the reverse periphery with some extension to the obverse. A consignor buyout that has not been submitted to CAC since graded. Housed in new large font NGC holder.

Choice $275 New February 20! Antique Gray Toning, Peripheral Mint Frost, Attractive at Grade. I will certainly add lower price early types coins to inventory when meeting eye appeal and originality standards. This choice 1830 LM-14 half dime performs well to both requirements. Love the remaining peripheral mint frost on the obverse and reverse. This piece is well balanced and warranting CAC approval. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder. A new GFRC buyback to consider.

LM-6
Choice $950 Steely Luster, Choice Surfaces, Strict Originality. A marvelous 1831 LM-6 Capped Bust dime that offers a light gray patina that is completely transparent to the underlying luster. When viewing this near gem under angle lighting, the fields shift to a steely radiance that is most pleasing and a bit surprising given the certified grade. Both sides feature heavy die clashes. I'm liking this new FUN2024 acquisition to the point of calling out a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Might you consider adding this piece to a collection as an example of CACG's reputation for conservative grading? I certainly would if pursuing this series. Housed in a new CAC Grading (2023) holder and graded consistent with CAC approval standards.

LM-5
Gem $3100 New February 25! Superb Gem, Thick Frosted Luster, Peripheral Toning. The 1832 LM-5 die pairing is a common die marriage for that year. LM-5 is the second reuse of a reverse die with filled loops in STATE(S) and progressive die cracking . This newly acquired example is a case study for the earlier die state without die cracks. Devices are razor sharp given the hammered strike. Thick frosted luster appears under bright light with the pastel green-gold peripheral rings being just delightful. A no question gem that did not secure a CAC bean, therefore it stands on its own merits, which are strong. Housed in new large font NGC holder.

Softly glowing frosted luster is consistent on both sides with rose-gray coloration being more evident on the reverse. The obverse is silver-gray with some teal-gray shades at the lower right stars and date. The reverse is fully struck with die cracks within a weak legend. With a 10x, light rub was confirmed on the cheek. A choice lot overall that warrants special consideration. Housed in new large font NGC holder.

LM-10
Choice $295 Crusty Gray Patina, Choice Surfaces, Complete Strike, Lakeland Collection. The Capped Bust half dime design was issued from 1829 through 1837 before the transition to Christian Gobrecht's Liberty Seated artistry during 1837. Collecting the series by date is not a difficult endeavor other than locating a premium 1837 example. This lovely 1833 issue is 100% original and overlayed with a fairly thick crusty gray patina. The ANACS grading is more than accurate as the strike and residual device details are limited only by light rub. Don't let the ANACS gold label holder hold you back from purchasing this piece as this one is all there for the grade and them some.

Definitely above average and ideal for the selective collector.

Choice $1400 New February 25! Sparkling Luster, Vibrant Cartwheels, Hammered Strike, Near-Gem Original. I like the 1834 Capped Bust half dime date as the variety attribution is straightforward with only three reverse dies, each distinctly different. LM-2 has an obverse with star 8 touching the top of the cap, an easy to memorize attribution point. Within a recently purchased CBHD lot is this near-gem example with sparkling obverse radiance while the reverse is "thickly" frosted. Surfaces are unquestionably pristine and a 10x viewing pleasure. Then there is a hammered strike with every intricate reverse detail being carefully cut into the working die. For whatever your collecting pursuits, this superb lot needs consideration. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2024) holder.

Choice $1050 Brilliant Frosted Luster, Vibrant Cartwheels, Fully Choice . Rich frosted luster radiates from this 1834 LM-2 Capped Bust half dime while the cartwheels are vibrant and pleasing. Strike is meticulously executed with deeply impressed motifs that are intricately detailed. Heavily die clashing is seen in front of the face and below left facing wing. During this later die state, the lower reverse has lost details due to progressive die lapping. A solid example for an advanced collection. Housed in new large font NGC holder.
