Description & Analysis

As was the case throughout the 1880's, the mintages of non-dollar silver coinage at the various mints plummeted. Such is the case with the 1883 Seated Liberty half dollar, which had a total mintage of a mere 9,039 pieces. All 1883 halves were struck at the Philadelphia Mint. 8,000 of those were mint state examples, with the remainder struck as proofs.
