1859 50C Half Dollar Liberty Seated, No Motto PCGS PR65 (CAC)
This is a great looking, wholly original GEM example of this Antebellum Proof Seated Liberty half dollar. Flashy, watery textured reflective mirrored fields are evenly and nicely toned in pastel peach-rose in the centers and soft lilac-blue at the peripheries. Sharply struck and the eye appeal is especially bold.
Only 800 Proofs were struck. PCGS 10, NGC 20, CAC 3. Only one CAC-approved example has ever sold in auction, an NGC-graded example that sold in our September 2021 Regency Auction. There has not been a PCGS-graded PR65 sold since March 2016. The current PCGS Price Guide value is $5,500. If you collect PR Seated Halves, you already know how difficult this date and grade is to find-let along one with a bean.
