1842-O Liberty Seated Half Dollar. Small date (reverse of 1839). PCGS graded VF-20. Small letters. Nice even toning on this key issue, with the main areas of weakness lying at the centers (as always) -- flatness on Liberty's shoulders and upper body, with corresponding soft areas on the eagle's legs and lower body. The small date 1842-O uses a reverse first appearing in 1839. Although supposedly 203,000 or so are reported as made, included in the initial delivery of February 28, 1842, part of this figure comprises coins dated 1841. Usually seen in low grades when offered at all (PCGS # 6238) .
Estimated Value $1,700 - 1,900.

Realized $2,300
