||HALF DOLLARS - SEATED LIBERTY, MOTTO
||50C 1876 S
||PCGS MS 66
WB-102, Type 1 reverse (open bud). If you think Bill's new monograph made identifying 1875-S varieties problematic, you ain't seen nothin' until you try to wade through the 43 variations of the 1876-S dies. I surrender. I'm just going to leave this coin as a beautiful example of a WB-102. It is a little tougher in gem mint state than the 75-S with PCGS having graded only three in MS-66 (NGC has come up with one 67 to go with three 66s). Bought directly from Joe O'Connor, February 2004.
