Seated Liberty Half Dimes were made from 1837 to 1873 with quite a few minor type variations. Seated Liberty Half Dimes were minted at Philadelphia, New Orleans and San Francisco.
Lots of scarce and rare dates exist in this popular series with the 1870-S Seated Liberty Half Dime being the ultimate rarity – only a single example is known!

Well struck and lustrous with shades of gold, rose, and green toning.
A beautiful richly toned Gem with tones of lavender, green and gold in the deeply reflective fields and a lovely greenish-gold on the heavily frosted devices. 1859 was the first year the U.S. Mint offered proofs to the public with proofs prior to that date being very elusive. Only 100 of these were minted!
CAC. Warm light golden toning on this well struck and fully lustrous Gem.
Very well struck with the date repunched to the south. The surfaces are very flashy and mostly brilliant with delicate rainbow toning developing towards the left obverse rim. A single year Paquet subtype with hollow star centers.
CAC. A single year sub-type as the stars have a hollow center and Ms. Liberty has a different facial expression. Anthony Paquet, designer of the 1861 Paquet double eagle, also designed this obverse. This example is very high quality for the grade with beautiful olive-green and gold toning.
Flashy white mirrored surfaces and a needle-sharp strike. Very nice for the grade.
