Description & Analysis

This is a rare coins across all grades. It's likely that most were never released and went to the melting pot as obsolete after passage of a new weight standard in February became effective a few weeks later. Mint State examples are extremely rare, and this is a key date within the Seated Liberty Half Dime series.

The weakness in the date exhibited by the illustrated coin is typical, as it appears that the date was punched into the die at an angle, the depth of impression increasing from left to right.
