Description & Analysis

This is a scarce issue across all grades, and it is one of the keys to completing the Seated Liberty Half Dime series. Mint State pieces are exceedingly rare.

Two mintmark sizes are known. The Small O is the more often seen variety, while the Large O (photos) is rare. This mintmark is also Medium O in some references, as it is smaller than the mintmark used in earlier years.
