$0.05 / H10c 1865 5c Seated Half Dime - NGC MS65 (Rotated 45 Deg)

Coming from a mintage of just 13,000 coins, the 1865 half dime is a very scarce date in the series. 

This coin is bright, rather well struck for the era, lustrous, and devoid of marks.  A fair amount of clashing is evident, and the reverse die rotated 45 degrees before strike.

The buyer should not be very concerned about this untoned coin toning over the years, as it is encased in an old NGC MS65 holder (Cert. No. 0657202-001), and shows no signs of toning over all of that time.
