Description & Analysis

The 1877 Seated Liberty half dollar had a healthy mintage of just over 8.3 million pieces. An additional 510 coins were struck in proof. Plenty of examples of this date have survived, even through the choice level. The population greatly thins out in gem and higher, however. Proofs are understandably much less common than the mint state issue, but definitely have a much higher overall survival rate.
