1839 Liberty Seated Half Dime. PCGS graded MS-66. Toned a deep blue and rose color on the obverse, the reverse lighter gold in color with full luster. Well struck and scarce this nice, with 11 so graded and 4 graded higher by PCGS. This coin, like all the other Benson coins, have been off the market for a very long time. Quality of this magnitude must be seen to be believed. One would think this was a late date Walking Liberty half dollar to be in this grade, but when you realize this coin was struck in 1839, wow.
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,000.
From the Benson collection and purchased from B. Max Mehl for $1.25 as Uncirculated, many decades ago.

Realized $6,900
