$0.50 1845 Seated 50c Half Dollar - Raw XF45

Here is a very pleasing 1845 Half Dollar from the Philadelphia Mint.

Underrated, as this issue is, most collectors need the date.  Perhaps more importantly, the majority of available specimens seem to be cleaned or otherwise damaged.

Solidly XF45, there is little to complain about with this coin, and plenty to appreciate.
