1801 H10C V-1 and V-2, LM-2, R.4, AU53 NGC. In this die state, a heavy vertical crack stretches from the Y in LIBERTY to star 13. The present coin displays complete rims and a bold portrait, although the eagle is weak on the head and neck from light wear. Daubs of rainbow toning at the rims frame light golden interiors. The 1801 half dime as a date is scarce, and pieces rarely appear that are finer than the present. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp and Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $50.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
