Stack's Bowers Auction The August 2013 Chicago ANA World's Fair of Money Jul-2013 CAC Stunning Gem Mint State 1861 Liberty Seated Half 1861 Liberty Seated Half Dollar. WB-101. MS-66 (PCGS). CAC. OGH. The surfaces are fully lustrous and bright silver on both sides save for a ring of attractive teal and russet around the obverse only just reaching to the stars and date. The strike is average as there are a few blunt areas on the star centers and Liberty's curls, but this is normal for this date and mint. The level of preservation is incredible, as the fields and devices show few signs of bag handling. Tied with a modest group as the second finest seen of this date and mint behind a single example that achieved the MS-66+ grade from PCGS. Numismatic Reflections by Q. David Bowers In high grade Mint State the 1861 is far rarer in circulation strike form than in Proof format. The present piece will be a great attraction for advanced specialists. PCGS# 6302. Provenance: From the Richard Jewell Collection. PCGS Population: 15; 1 finer (Mint State-66+ finest).
