$0.50 1862 Seated 50c Half Dollar - PCGS AU53 PQ

In circulated grades, Philadelphia half dollars of the civil war era are consistently scarcer than their San Francisco counterparts.

This example of the 1862, graded AU53 by PCGS (Cert. No. 83426599) is especially nice, not suffering from efforts at increasing either grade or value.

Crisply struck, the retention of both luster and original toning in all of the expected areas bears witness to 150 years of proper care.
