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 and lustrous with attractive toning. Very nearly mint state.
Sharp detail with problem-free original surfaces. A tough date in high grade.
Well struck with flashy lustrous champagne-gold surfaces. A tough date to find in mint state.
Sharp detail with attractive, problem-free soft-gray surfaces.
Strong detail with lustrous champagne-white surfaces.
Strong detail with lustrous surfaces that have light original toning.
An amazing example of this short-lived 'Arrows' type with beautiful rich toning that starts with a honey-gold core and develops to rose hues and finally turquoise at the rim. The strike is needle-sharp and the eye appeal is riveting! None have graded numerically finer at NGC or PCGS!
Strong detail and lustrous with light golden toning.
A stunning Gem Proof with exquisite iridescent toning showing lavender, pink, rose, and gold tones. Just 470 minted. From an old Hollinbeck Stamp & Coin sale, 1947. Auction envelope included.
No Motto. A pleasing example of this scarce date. Just 60,000 minted.
A sharply detailed example of this scarce date which seldom shows up in this high of grade.
CAC. Scarce in mint state despite a 2 million coin mintage. This is a very boldly struck example with steel-gray surfaces and minimal marks. NGC population: 8 in 62, 14 finer.
Strong detail with pleasing light steel-gray surfaces.
Arrows. Bright luster and sharp detail.
Arrows. Scarce with only 550 minted. Attractive untoned surfaces and very nice for the grade.
A nice problem-free example of this better date. The detail is strong for the grade and light silver-gray surfaces retain a trace of luster.
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.
Crisp brilliant luster with a halo of gold at the rim and rich frost on the design features.
