||HALF DOLLARS - SEATED LIBERTY, MOTTO
||NGC MS 67
WB-102. With a mintage of just 10,000 coins collectors in the 1880s decided these coins had to be future rarities, and it feels like they saved them all. Which meant that from our vantage point in the future there is nothing rare about them whatsoever. (Collectors still do this today. Remember the 1950-D nickel?) All these late dates are simply eye candy. And on that score this coin doesn't disappoint at all. Beuatiful throughout in strike luster and especially toning. Bought in an ANR auction March 2004, lot 615.
