Tough date 1851-O WB-4 Liberty Seated half dollar, PCGS VF25. The surfaces are clean and fairly smooth, and the antique album toning is quite pretty. There is plenty of soft luster to be found... Much more than a mere VF25 should display, but the coin has clearly been carefully preserved.Maybe the coin really grades VF35. Perhaps even both are correct... Which is exactly our opinion! In any case, this is a very pleasing example. A fairly low-mintage issue with a low survival rate due to melting near the time of issue the price of silver was on the rise, and these were worth more than.
50c in bullion not long after they were minted, coupled with the demand from date collectors (the only other 1851 half dollars made, the Philly issues, are much more rare and expensive, partly for the same reason), makes the demand for these very strong.
