1857 50C AU58 Certification #15725326, PCGS #6290
The 1857 Half Dollar is an excellent candidate to represent the No Motto Seated Liberty Type. It is a relatively common date, affordable in most grades, available in several Mint State grades, and it is usually sharply struck and well-produced. However, it is very difficult to locate high-end 1857 Half Dollars, especially in grades above MS65. Even so, the highest graded 1857 Half Dollars (MS66) are some of the best bargains in numismatics.
