1860-O Seated Liberty 50C NGC SP-66

This is the Finest of just 2 known examples for the 1860-O, the other an NGC SP64

This extraordinary 1860-O Half Dollar in “Specimen” format is an incredibly hybrid between Business Strike and Proof strikings. For Branch Mint examples this is among the best that can be expected, with few true Specimen or Proof strikes known for all Branch Mint issues.

Description

In the days and weeks leading up to the Civil War a dark cloud could be seen slowly forming over the whole of the nation. For years this cloud would fail to part, increasingly darkening and flooding its rain onto the earth below.

The drumbeat of war could be heard in the distance. The rich, brown soil would soon be turned to bloodstained red.

This extraordinary 1860-O Half Dollar in “Specimen” format is an incredibly hybrid between Business Strike and Proof strikings. For Branch Mint examples this is among the best that can be expected, with few true Specimen or Proof strikes known for all Branch Mint issues.
