1875 50C VF25 Certification #32791605, PCGS #6349

Expert Comments

Ron Guth

The 1875 has a huge mintage relative to virtually every other date in the series.  At over six million coins, this mintage was the largest since 1858 and it was the fourth largest of the series.  This makes the 1875 Half Dollar an affordable example of the type and one which can be found with relative ease.  Scores of Mint State examples exist in a range of grades from MS62 to MS64.  Gems are scarce, but not rare.  What is most surprising is how rare this date is in grades above MS65.  One would think that a coin with such a large mintage might have survived in better condition.
