||HALF DOLLARS - SEATED LIBERTY, NO MOTTO
||PCGS MS 64
WB-101. Normal date. In issue #105 of the Gobrecht Journal Ken Cable-Camilleis ranks this as one of the easier early date Philadelphia coins to obtain. Even so the services have graded only 3 gems (65), and I had to look long and hard to find this magnificent coin. Well struck on both the obverse (full head I would note if I were writing up a Liberty Standing quarter) and reverse with wonderful toning throughout. There are two die cracks on the obverse, one quite noticeable looping down from the rock through the base to the rim. The other lightly connects the bases of the numerals. From Bill Nagle, October 2006.
