Seated Liberty Half Dimes
1841 H10C PF

Description & Analysis

The 1841 proof half dime is a major rarity, as it appears that fewer than a dozen were coined for inclusion in complete proof sets. Evidently, none were restruck in later years, a common practice with silver dollars and half cents. The number of survivors was estimated at eight or so by Walter Breen and at no more than five or six by David Akers.
