1865 Liberty Seated Half Dime. PCGS graded Proof 66. One of the finest graded by PCGS, which reports 10 this high and none graded higher! Superb deep blue around the rims, fading to gold, then white at the centers. Deeply frosted devices, and wonderfully preserved. Only 500 minted, with an additional 13,000 business strikes, combine to make this one of the lowest mintage years of all Half Dimes. Don't miss this one if you love toned proofs.
Estimated Value $1,500 - 2,000.
From the Benson collection and purchased from B. Max Mehl for $7.35 around 1944.

Realized $3,565
