1857 Liberty Seated Half Dime. MS-67 (PCGS). A stunning superb gem arrayed with warm blue iridescent toning on both sides. The strike is good and definitive making this a lovely piece to behold. An exceptionally well preserved and attractive survivor from a mintage of 1,380,000 pieces, most of which succumbed to heavy commercial use in the Deep South. This piece is among the finest known, with just 4 ranked finer at PCGS.
