1829 H10C PCGS MS65

The surfaces are lightly semi-prooflike with a strong luster that enlivens both sides. The obverse has a mix of golden brown, pale olive, russet, and pale green colors. The reverse has deep champagne and pewter colors. If you are looking for a coin with beautiful toning, this coin is a must buy.

PCGS Survey
Sponsored by L&C Coins

Do you prefer to buy the key dates first to get the investment out of the way, or last, after you know as much as you can about the series?
  • I buy them first, that way I have a substantial investment complete, and then I can work on the rest of the set.
  • I buy them last, that way I can learn all about the series, including grading and valuing, before making a substantial investment.
