Description & Analysis

Randy Wiley and Bill Bugert, in their Complete Guide to Liberty Seated Half Dollars, suggest possibly 20 Normal Date pieces are known, while Walter Breen (1988) says there may be 12 coins extant. We feel that the above estimates of 1855 Normal Date proof half dollar survivors are somewhat high.
