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.
Doubled Date. A very neat variety as the repunched date is well north of the properly positioned date. Scarce in any grade and a true rarity in high grade. We've never seen a mint state coin although 3 are listed in the PCGS pop. report. This is by far the nicest we've handled.
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.
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!
Only 300 proofs minted in 1858 with an estimate 80 to 100 survivors. This example is very sharply struck with flashy deep mirrored surfaces that display intense luster and beautiful iridescent gold and blue toning. Super eye appeal!
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. A stunning coin with claims to a higher grade than 64! The design elements are brilliant and heavily frosted. They seem to jump of the gorgeous deeply mirrored fields which are accented by delicate gold toning at the rim. The eye appeal is off the charts!
Well struck with radiant mint luster. The surfaces display a silver-white patina with a touch of gold at the rim.
An exceptional Premium Gem with pristine deep mirrored fields and heavy frost on the design features. Full vibrant mint luster with a very faint golden glow blankets this lovely half dollar. Just 550 proofs struck.
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.
Snow white frost on the devices with a delicate gold hue to the highly reflective mirror surfaces. The contrast give this coin exceptional eye appeal.
