1855-O Liberty Seated Half Dime. PCGS graded MS-64. Lovely golden toning. The New Orleans Mint concentrated on Half Dollar production in 1855 at the expense of other silver denominations. The Half Dime fared somewhat better than the Dime and Quarter. No Dimes were struck, and just 176,000 1855-O Quarters emerged form the presses as opposed to 600,000 1855-dated Half Dimes. The final mintage is, however, the lowest in the Arrows Seated Half Dime series of 1853-1855, with survivors fairly scarce even in circulated grades. Mint State examples are rare (PCGS # 4361) .
Estimated Value $1,500 - 2,000.

Realized $1,725
