Capped Bust 5C 1834 Capped Bust 5C 1834
Choice $1350 Near Gem Original, Aquamarine Gold Patina, Mirrored Fields, Accurately Graded, Above Average Eye Appeal. A superior Capped Bust half dime offering with mirrored fields and aquamarine-gold coloring. In hand viewing suggest medium colored patina but once a light source is added, the coloring melts and exposes mostly transparent gold on the obverse and darker shades on the reverse. Strike is well executed with fully rounded stars and bold eagle feathers. Mirrored fields are notorious for exposing any blemishes but, in the case of this 1834 LM-4 example, there are no blemishes to detract or any hairlines under bright light and 10x loupe inspection. Housed in 2013 transitional PCGS holder with blue label and edge view insert. An important offering for the selective collector who wants only the best possible at a fair price.
