Jaime Hernandez:

The 1870 Liberty Seated Half Dime has one of the higher mintages in the series. However, despite it's very large mintage, a very small amount of coins have been confirmed to exist compared to its original mintage. The PCGS CoinFacts Rarity estimates about 1,000 examples exist, making it very scarce in all grades. In MS67 or higher it is considered rare, as very few examples exist in this condition.
