||HALF DOLLARS - SEATED LIBERTY, MOTTO
||50C 1876 CC
||PCGS MS 66
WB-103, large mint mark. I'm not sure of this attribution as, while the mint mark appears large, it is not in the position of any of the three reverses pictured in W&B. It is much lower and both C's come close to fitting directly above the top of the F in HALF. I was a little surprised to find this coin so difficult in gem. It is bettered by only two coins at NGC (a 67 and a 68) and none are graded higher at PCGS. For some reason I think of this as a more common date, maybe just more common only in comparison to the great rarities that precede it. Heavily toned with some wild coloring on the reverse, but unmarked. Bought directly from Larry Whitlow October 2001.
