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.
Lovely frosty white nearly mint state surfaces showcase excellent strike.
Well detailed with lustrous light silver-gray surfaces. Tough to find in high grade.
Arrows and Rays.
Arrows. Well struck with vibrant luster and exquisite 'old-time' rainbow toning. Tied for the finest graded at either service.
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.
A pleasing brilliant proof with a very light dusting of gold and nicely frosted design features. A Civil War date that saw a mintage of just 550 pieces.
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.
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.
Arrows. A nice problem-free coin with light gray surfaces.
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.
Crisp brilliant luster with a halo of gold at the rim and rich frost on the design features.
CAC. A delicate blend of gold and violet tint rests upon nicely mirrored surfaces.
Solid detail with pleasing steel-gray surfaces that have a nice turquoise hue at the borders. Just 10.000 minted.
