Consignor Buy-Out/Price Reduction! WB-5, Large S, Late Die State Dies, Choice Original, Gorgeous Satiny Luster, Accurately Graded. Since starting up the GFRC business back in 2013, I've reviewed my share of Civil War Liberty Seated halves including those struck in San Francisco. Honestly, this is one of the better example seen to date and perfect for an advanced date and mintmark set. 1862-S halves are found with three mintmark sizes and late die state strikes. This WB-5 example has a Large S mintmark and was struck from eroded dies. The result is uniform satiny luster with a hint of cartwheel effect under a bright light. Residual mint frost is plentiful and surrounds all the major devices. Surfaces are blemish free and attractive under 10x loupe. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder. December 1969
