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!
No Stars, Large Date. Date clearly doubled south of the proper position. A beautiful blast white coin take is sharply struck and looks a heck of a lot better than the typical 63!
Popular first year of issue and short-lived "No Stars" type. This example is extremely well struck with lustrous surfaces beneath nice champagne-gold, dove-gray and lime-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.
