eated 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.
CAC. Reverse of 1839. Well detailed with nice mottled toning.
Very sharp detail with considerable mint luster beneath russet-gold toning.
CAC. Very well struck with frosty mint luster and outstanding visual appeal. NGC has graded fewer than 30 coins mint state and it is likely many of those don't have the eye appeal of this example.
CAC. Well struck and lustrous with a touch of russet toning. Very nearly mint state.
Arrows and Rays.
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 with the only noteworthy blemish being a single mark below the eagle's beak on the reverse. One of the most riveting Seated Halves we've handled!
Beautiful multi-colored toning with shades of blue, lavender and gold.
A brilliant proof from the Jules Reiver Collection. Only 800 minted.
Sharp detail and lustrous brilliant surfaces. Just a touch of wear away from being mint state.
CAC approved. A stunning beauty with white frost on the devices against a brilliant mirror that shows a delicate trace of gold at the rim. Very light hairlines define the grade but this coin has the eye appeal of a higher grade coin!
CAC. Superb black-white cameo contrast on this beautiful blast white proof. A coin that seems conservatively graded given its nearly mark-free surfaces and exceptional eye appeal.
A spectacular blazing white Gem with just a trace of gold to attest to the originality of this nearly perfect coin. A special Seated Half that will surely amaze and delight its next owner! Only 550 proofs minted.
Highly reflective fields and heavily frosted, razor sharp design features give this coin dramatic cameo contrast. Only 550 proofs struck.
CAC. Just 550 proofs of this popular Civil War era half dollar were minted. The heavily frosted center is white while the fields show a very light silver-gray patina with a touch of gold at the rim. The cameo contrast is stunning and gives this beauty excellent eye appeal.
Well struck with nice contrast and bright surfaces. A popular Civil War era date with just 470 proofs minted.
Beautiful deep mirror surfaces with a light golden hue. The strike is extremely sharp with every design element fully defined. Only 500 proofs were minted.
With Motto. Crisp white luster and well struck. A pleasing example from the first year the motto IN GOD WE TRUST was added to the reverse.
No Motto. A pleasing example of this scarce date. Just 60,000 minted.
No Motto. Solid detail with light silver-gray surfaces. Just 60,000 minted before the the reverse design was changed and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST was added.
From the first year of operation for the Carson City Mint and one of the most sought-after dates in the Seated Liberty series. Only 54,617 were minted and the survival rate was extremely low. This attractive defect-free example has pleasing light silver-gray surfaces and nice even detail.
