1832 Capped Bust Half Dime. LM-12. Rarity-2. MS-64 (PCGS). CAC. This is a flashy and original near-Gem with swaths of olive-gold and navy blue patina on each side. A workhorse die for this issue, the obverse used here will go on to strike coins in two more die marriages, LM-13 and 14. Already we see signs of fatigue including a filled lower loop of the 8 in the date. This reverse die shows similar wear in the form of bulging at the shield and a snaking crack at the olive branches towards the center. With a green sticker from CAC, this is an ideal candidate for a high end type set or specialized collection.
