1869-S Liberty Seated Half Dime. PCGS graded MS-64. Nice golden toning. Desirable satin luster flows across the delicately toned silver surfaces. That being the case, this date, in addition to being elusive in Mint condition is also difficult to find fully struck. The present coin retains nice detail to Liberty and much of the wreath from a strictly above-average strike, but there is some softness in the design at the rock and left side of the shield. Also, the upper left part of the wreath is weak (these two high areas of the design lie opposite one another and often caused weakness while the other areas are normally sharp. Scarce, with low census of: Pop 14; 3 finer; 1 in 65; 2 in 66. (PCGS # 4395) .
Estimated Value $2,000 - 2,100.
