Ron Guth:

The 1871 Half Dime is one of the most common dates in the series, though it is not as plentiful as dates such as 1837 Large Date, 1853 With Arrows, 1857, 1858, 1860, and 1872-S (Mintmark below wreath). Likewise, Mint State examples are reasonably plentiful, especially in the MS63 and MS64 grades. A dozen or so MS66 examples are known, but PCGS has certified only one MS67 example, with none finer (as of March 2011).
