||HALF DOLLARS - SEATED LIBERTY, MOTTO
||PCGS MS 67
Despite a mintage of only 5,000 coins, 1886 remains a relatively common date. Perhaps not in this grade where PCGS has certified only two and NGC has certified none this fine. The date elicits little comment in numismatic literature as there was only one set of dies with no variations to comment on. The current coin is well struck, mark free, and has even eye-appealing toning. Bought from a Bowers sale, November 2010, lot 2080.
