Seated Liberty Half Dollars were minted from 1839 to 1891. They were made in Philadelphia, New Orleans, and San Francisco.
Many minor design changes were made over the years. There are many scarce and rare dates in the Seated Liberty Half Dollar series.
Sharp detail with lustrous steel-gray surfaces.
Tall Date. Scarce in all grades.
Well detailed with lustrous light silver-gray surfaces. Tough to find in high grade.
Arrows and Rays. A sharp strike with a lustrous white core and attractive light peripheral toning.
Blazing central white luster framed by stunning russet and forest green peripheral toning. The strike is needle-sharp and the surfaces are nearly pristine. One of the finest survivors from this popular Civil War date.
CAC. CSA Obverse. Identified by a die crack from the rim to Liberty's nose. The same die crack is seen on the 4 known examples of the 1861 Confederate Half. This is a beautiful coin with solid detail and outstanding original surfaces.
CAC. A core of frosty golden luster blends with splashes of peripheral champagne and blue-violet accents. With a production of 253,000, this is the lowest mintage business strike half of the Civil War. Great eye appeal.
Blast white and a great strike with a fantastic 'look' for a Proof-63!
Cleaned - UNC Detail.
With Motto. A nice bright champagne-white core that is framed by attractive iridescent peripheral toning. Strong eye appeal with no significant marks or spots.
From the first year of operation for the Carson City mint and the rarest half dollar to come out of that mint. Just 54,617 made and most of the few survivors would probably 'no grade' at PCGS or NGC do to various problems. This is a pleasing example with solid detail and nice gray surfaces that have hues of brown and underlying blue.
From the first year of operation for the Carson City mint. 54,617 were minted and the survival rate was very low. This is a pleasing example with nice steel-gray surfaces.
Richly mirrored surfaces blend with warm honey and turquoise tints. A classic and original look.
Beautifully mirrored surfaces with nicely frosted devices that are enhanced by a delicate layer of pale gold hue. Deeper gold accents line the periphery.
Strong detail with pleasing light steel-gray surfaces. A modest 257,000 minted with relatively few survivors.
CAC. Closed 3, No Arrows. Beautiful flashy champagne-gold surfaces with frosted devices and a touch of turquoise at the obverse rim.
Arrows. A nice problem-free coin with light gray surfaces.
Arrows. Sharp detail with light surfaces except for a splash of dark toning between 1 and 3 o'clock on the obverse. Would probably be in an AU holder otherwise.
Arrows. A short-lived two year type to signify to the public that the weight had changed from 12.44 to 12.5 grams. This is a very attractive proof with a champagne core framed by turquoise and gold peripheral toning. Heavy frost on the design adds to the excellent eye appeal.
CAC. A very attractive Gem with a champagne-white core and iridescent lavender, turquoise and gold toning at the borders.
