||HALF DOLLARS - SEATED LIBERTY, MOTTO
||PCGS MS 67
WB-101, with no signs of recutting on the final 4 in the date. Listed in W&B as a proof only die, but this coin shows none of the mirrored surfaces I associate with proofs. I will say the strike is exceptionally crisp both on the obverse and reverse. Beautifully toned with excellent luster, the coin has to rank close to the top of the five specimens PCGS has graded MS-67. Bought at a Bowers and Merena auction, November, 2010, lot 2078.
