1860 Liberty Seated Half Dime. Legend. PCGS graded Proof 62. Here is an example of a moderate grade on a really beautiful coin. The obverse has deep blue and gold toning, with the centers bright white, the reverse has similar toning, deep gold at the rims, bright at the centers. Minor handling marks inside the wreath on the reverse, and trivial hairlines from a higher grade. A scarce and early proof issue.
Estimated Value $250 - 300.
From the Benson collection and purchased from B. Max Mehl for $2.85, probably around 1943/4.

Realized $345
