1863 Liberty Seated Half Dollar. PCGS graded MS-64. A nice white coin. the holder has a scratch which does not effect this coin. Sparkling and satiny bright silver color with streaming iridescence from the way the dies were lightly polished, giving fine parallel lines in the surface that are a part of most P-mint halves in high grade from the 1860s. A very sharp impact was left by the blow of the (possibly fresh new) dies that struck this attractive 1863. At the time it was minted, production was mainly for the use of exporters; silver coins had by then disappeared from circulation due to wartime conditions. Pop 16; 9 in 65; 3 in 66. (PCGS # 6309) .
Estimated Value $2,800 - 3,000.

Realized $2,645
