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.
Reverse of 1839. Well detailed and attractive with light silver-gray surfaces.
855,100 minted with surprisingly few mint state survivors. This example has crisp brilliant luster and a solid strike with minimal marks.
Tall Date. Well detailed with pleasing battleship gray surfaces.
CAC. Medium Date. Very sharply struck with vibrant mint luster and no noticeable wear. A delicate champagne-gold hue blankets the coin with turquoise toning at the rim. Very attractive with the eye appeal of a 63 coin! (RPD WB-105)
CAC. Well struck and lustrous with a touch of russet toning. Very nearly mint state.
Arrows and Rays. Well struck with virtually full detail and considerable brilliant mint luster.
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!
Attractive with very nearly XF detail. A better date with 211,000 minted.
818,000 minted with very few surviving in high grade. PCGS has graded just 18 mint state coins with an MS-64 being the finest. This example is very well struck with nice crisp white luster.
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!
Sharp detail and lustrous brilliant surfaces. Just a touch of wear away from being mint state.
Well struck with rich frosty mint luster and a light champagne hue. A flashy 'S' mint half dollar with excellent eye appeal.
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.
No Motto. Solid detail with light silver-gray surfaces. Just 60,000 minted before the reverse design was changed and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST was added.
1,000 proofs minted but very few had the deep mirrored fields and heavy frost on the design to garner a 'Cameo' designation. In fact; NGC has only graded 2 Cameo coins - both Proof-64. This example has brilliant white luster and strong cameo contrast.
CAC. Well struck with brilliant silver luster and just the faintest pink hue. One million minted yet surprisingly scarce, particularly in mint state. Only 10 have graded finer at PCGS.
Well detailed with a light golden hue.
CAC. Blue-green and amber toning at the border with frosty brilliance in the center. A wonderful coin with incredible eye appeal. Very conservatively graded!
Arrows. Sharp detail and lustrouswith a silver-gray patina and a faint golden hue.
Arrows. Nearly mint state with brilliant lustrous surfaces.
