Description & Analysis

Just a single example is known of this second rendition of the 1839 Seated Liberty Half Dollar. Believed to have at one time belonged to prominent collector Virgil M. Brand, its provenance can be confirmed only back to the 1961 sale of the Gustav Lichtenfels Collection by Abner Kreisberg and Hans Schulman. The buyer was John Jay Pittman, and proof specialist Phil Kaufman bought it out of David Akers' sale of the Pittman Collection in 1998. Ten years later, it was sold as part of Kaufman's magnificent collection of all Seated Liberty proofs from half dime through silver dollar.
