1861 Half Dollar - 1861 50C NGC AU58 CAC. The Seated Half Dollar series, minted from 1839 to 1891 is a very difficult set to complete in any grade. Some of the issues are so rare that every appearance is a major headline in numismatic journals. Others are extremely condition rarities, unknown or nearly so in uncirculated condition, and very rare in the higher circulated rates. Others are found on the market with some frequency, but original examples are scarce for virtually every issue. Whatever their status is, however, every coin of this series will tell part of the story that the 19th century was.
The coin we presently offer was minted in the first year of the American Civil War, and has remained in original condition since those dark dates. Soon after the Civil War broke out circulation of gold and silver coins stopped, because of massive hoarding, and perhaps that’s the reason that this coin has remained to exist in such wonderful condition. Highlighted by steel-gray surfaces, with various colors in the fields, and vibrant luster under the toning. Both sides are sharply struck, with only minimal marks on the surfaces of the coins. Excellent eye-appeal and the perfect coin for a type set of American Civil War coinage.
