1873-S H10C AU55 NGC. The 1873-S holds the distinction of being the final issue in the half dime series, which began in 1794. A total of 324,000 examples were struck at the California branch mint in 1873 -- less than half the number produced at Philadelphia. A cover of antique golden-gray patina adorns this Choice About Uncirculated representative, showing good detail with a trace of high-point rub. The corn kernels are strong and partial luster remains. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
