I find that, if I stare at the reverse of Spence's 1870 half dime, I can see an "S" materializing below the wreath! Is anyone else experiencing this phenomenon?

I could take and post a close-up of this area.

In the meanwhile, here is my low grade '71-P half dime:

Only a couple more days to this thread.

First, here is a close-up of the bottom of the wreath on my 1870 half dime. While those heavy scratches show up really nicely, I'm not seeing even a whisper of an S mintmark. Thoughts?




For today, here is a '72-P half dime:

Spence there is only one 1870-S half dime. Sorry, but yours is not it.

Well played gentlemen. I fell for that hook, line, and sinker.

This 1872 half dime was a Christmas gift to myself last year.

There is only one KNOWN 1870-S half dime.

Keep staring at that picture, that S might appear.
