||HALF DOLLARS - SEATED LIBERTY, NO MOTTO
||50C 1861 O
||PCGS MS 66
WB-101. An average example struck form worn dies. Drapery at elbow partly polished away; light die crack through HALF DOL on reverse. Unfortunately though none of the definitive die breaks that would link this coin to the Confederacy. From Ira and Larry Goldberg's sale in September, 1999, lot 1304--a companion piece to the 1859-O cited earlier. There were a series of lovely, high grade bust and seated halves in that sale.
