||1844-O Seated Liberty Half Dollar. WB-102. MS-62 (PCGS). A bright silver coin that shows a few traces of russet toning near the rims, with the devices showing considerable mint frost offset by the glassy nature of the fields. Clean surfaces with a few minor nicks and faint lines on both sides. Amazingly sharp on Liberty's head and the eagle in terms of strike, although a few stars are a tad weak at their centers. The master hub left a small incuse centering dot or void right on Liberty's thigh near the right shield point, seen on other coins from this die, and the reverse die shows evidence of fine die lines within the vertical shield lines in two or more orientations caused during the die preparation process.
