1890 Liberty Seated Half Dollar. Proof-66+ (PCGS). CAC--Gold Label.This is a beautiful Gem half dollar that really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Both sides exhibit lovely multicolored iridescent toning that points to long term storage in an original holder. The surfaces are as smooth and serene as the day the coin emerged from the dies, and we would not be surprised to see this specimen certified at the Proof-67 level. Fully struck with an intensely reflective finish, we anticipate strong competition for this piece among sharp-eyed bidders. The penultimate Proof Liberty Seated half dollar, the 1890 has a mintage of 590 pieces. This is one of the lowest totals for a half dollar of the Motto design type, although the rate of survival is above average given the popularity that Proof coinage enjoyed with contemporary collectors during the later years of this series. The present example is far finer than the typically offered survivor, and it is of even further desirability given the mintage (12,000 pieces) of the associated circulation strike. A fabulous specimen that is sure to sell for a premium price.
