1860-O Liberty Seated Half Dime. NGC graded MS-63. Here is a controversial coin, the surfaces are reflective and we note a strong wire edge around most of the obverse and reverse as seen on proof issues. Breen states that 4 proofs are known of this date, the reason they were struck is unknown. Regardless, if this is mint state or proof, it is a beautiful example that boasts deep gray and blue toning on the obverse, and lighter shades on the reverse. Quickly identifiable by a small edge cut or lamination left of the date and a speck near the bottom point of the cap. The mintmark is thin on the left, thicker on right side.
Estimated Value $250-UP.
From the Benson collection and purchased from J. G. Macallister in a large group of half dimes on November 7, 1944 for $80.00.

Realized $1,093
