Ron Guth:

1876 saw a high-water mark set for production of Half Dollars -- 8,418,000 coins to be exact. No U.S. Mint in any location had ever poduced that many Half Dollars since the inception of coinage in 1794, nor would that mark be met or exceeded until 1917. Thus, the 1876 Half Dollar is generally considered to be the most common and most affordable of all the Seated Liberty Half Dollars. Hundreds of them have been certiified by PCGS in Mint State, usually in grades from MS62 to MS64. Gems become a little scarce and anything above MS65 is highly desirable. Despite the large production of 1876 Half Dollars, quality did not suffer. Nonetheless, we recommend that collectors seek out fully struck examples for their collections.
