    Description

    1850-O Seated Liberty Half Dime, MS67
    Single-Finest Certified Example

    1850-O H10C MS67 PCGS. CAC. This spectacular Superb Gem is the single-finest certified survivor of a business-strike mintage of 690,000 pieces. The 1850-O was released into circulation before coin collecting became widespread in this country, around 1857, and decades before any real interest in mintmark issues developed, in the 1890s. As a result, very few high-quality examples were saved at the time of issue, and Mint State specimens are elusive in today's market.

    The present coin offers well-detailed design elements and impeccably preserved surfaces that radiate vibrant mint luster on both sides. Subtle hints of champagne-gold and lavender toning enhance the outstanding eye appeal. Population: 1 in 67, 0 finer (12/14).(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 233G, PCGS# 4346)

    Weight: 1.34 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
