LM-9 R2 Choice $475 Choice Original, Satiny Luster, Heavily Lapped Obverse Die, Accurately Graded, Santa Fe Collection. When viewing this lovely 1833 half dime, one has to remember the LM-9 die variety is the last use of Obverse 2 with star 6 doubled. At this point, the die has been lapped due to heavy die clashing in front of face leading to weaker devices. Contrast this with the reverse which is bolder and in an earlier die state. With that said, let's describe the piece in hand and under bright light. A no question AU58 example with satiny luster on the obverse and glowing frosty luster on the reverse. Obverse coloring is dominated by aquamarine with intermixed rose while the reverse is transparent gold that glows under a light source. The reverse denomination is sharply doubled and demonstrates classic ejection doubling. Freshly graded by the Santa Fe Collection consignor and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Definitely worth consideration for an advanced collection.
