Stack's Bowers Auction The August 2013 Chicago ANA World's Fair of Money Jul-2013 Superb 1890 Liberty Seated Half 1890 Liberty Seated Half Dollar. WB-101. MS-67 (NGC). The 1890 is the penultimate issue in the circulation strike Liberty Seated half dollar series, and the final date with a mintage of fewer than 100,000 coins. The original mintage was just 12,000 pieces, and survivors are seldom offered any finer than MS-64. As a virtually pristine Superb Gem with wonderful originality to both sides, this remarkable survivor is easily among the finest known. Both the obverse and reverse are nearly brilliant in the center with a halo of blended copper-apricot iridescence around the periphery. Vibrantly lustrous, this needle-sharp beauty is sure to please even the most discerning collector. Numismatic Reflections by Q. David Bowers I don't recall ever having seen a finer piece. Examples at the current level are sufficiently rare that years will pass between our offering them at auction. PCGS# 6372. Provenance: From the Richard Jewell Collection. NGC Census: 6 in 67 (some likely resubmissions); 1 finer (MS-68).
