1864 Liberty Seated Half Dime. PCGS graded Proof 66. One of the finest graded of this date, PCGS notes 6 this high with a single coin graded higher. Deep blue in the fields, frosty on the devices which also show toning. A superb example for the specialist who demands outstanding quality. Further, this is a rare date with a mintage of just 470 and a low mintage of just 48,000 for circulation. Mintages of both proofs and business strikes plummeted during the dark days of the Civil War. Always popular with collectors, this date is seldom offered in high grades.
Estimated Value $1,500 - 2,000.
From the Benson collection and purchased from B. Max Mehl for $25.00 around 1944.

Realized $2,760
