||HALF DOLLARS - SEATED LIBERTY, MOTTO
||PCGS MS 68
WB-101. Ex-Rod Sweet. From a Bowers and Merena auction, April 7, 2005 lot 568, where the cataloguer termed the coin as having "awe inspiring eye appeal". One of six coins in the entire series that PCGS deemed fit to be graded MS-68. Close to perfect with outstanding luster and eye appeal. The most interesting feature is a light die crack connecting the lower part of the numerals in the date. Also curious is a die crack through the raised portions of both sides of the lower loop of the numeral 6. Hard to see how this strike occured. Somewhat similar to the controversial strike of the 1877/6 supposed overdate.
