||HALF DOLLARS - SEATED LIBERTY, NO MOTTO
||50C 1856 O
||PCGS MS 66
WB-102. Date doubled. Shows clearly below the 1, with an outline of both the 5 and the 6 evident above their respective numbers. Several stars including 3 4 and 7 restruck. W&B rate this variety R7- in mint state. W&B as well as Beistle have identified three different dies for this date exhibiting reecut dates. And this is one of the more difficult to find. One of only two 66s graded at PCGS for all varieties and a spectacularly beautiful coin in its own right. Bought directly from David Lawrence, August 2000.
