1854 Liberty Seated Half Dime. PCGS graded Proof 64. An extremely rare early proof issue, PCGS estimates that 15 were struck, 13 of which they have graded as follows; PR-63 3 coins; PR-64 7 coins; and PR-65 3 coins. This coin falls solidly in the middle of those known. Steel gray in color on the obverse, more golden gray on the reverse. Perfectly struck and well preserved, with few signs of handling whatsoever. Identifiable by a minor lint mark (as struck) which extends upwards from the left loop of the bow on the right side, up the left leg of the M of DIME, through the L and into the top left serif of the F in HALF. A rare opportunity for the specialist.
Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000.
From the Benson collection and purchased from Dr Mann on April 28, 1945 for $20.

Realized $10,925
