One such distraction was the introduction of the new Three-Cent piece. Another was the extreme ramp-up in the production of the One Dollar gold piece -- the mintage of that denomionation jumped from 481,953 coins in 1850 to a record 3.3+ million in 1851. Quarter Eagles poured out to the tune of nearly 1.4 million coins (the largest mintage in that denomination's history). Fortunately, some astute collectors gathered up and protected a small selection of 1851 Half Dollars, one of which is an amazing, toned PCGS MS67 that is a unique Top Pop.
Full struck examples of this date are quite scarce and we've yet to see one that shows the crispness of strike that we normally expect of a Philadelphia Mint product. ALL Precious Metals tested with our own Sigma Metalytics Precious Metal Tester and guaranteed genuine.
