Seated 50C 1863 Seated 50C 1863

Choice $875 Scarce Civil War Philadelpha Date, Mirrored Fields, Crusty Gray Coloring, Fully Struck. Limited mintage of 503,200 pieces with limited survival rate at the AU grades. PCGS has certified all of 38 piece in all AU grades with resubmissions being likely in that number. I don't often see nice 1863 halves and pounced on this PCGS AU55 example at the Altanta ANA coin show. This offering is fully struck with boldly detailed devices. Fields are mirrored and provide sharp reflective luster that one would expect from a proof strike. Coloring is a crusty gun metal gray with embedded rose and gold hues. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.1 (2002-2004) holder. Definitely worthy of a Choice quality rating.
