Gem $6450 Low Mintage Date, Frosted Gem, Completed Strike, Wicked Eye Appeal. Wicked nice eye appeal arrives with this gem 1882 Liberty Seated half. One of the consecutive low mintage dates issued from 1879 through 1890 with only 4,400 struck. So what is this "wicked nice" eye appeal all about? The die condition that produces frosted reflective luster is a combination of uniform micro frost across devices and fields along with still retaining steely polishing. The result is a coin that has a frosted appearance during straight on viewing but issues reflective luster when angled under a bright light. A complete strike and mark free fields are also noted as key ingredients. A wonderful piece and one of many new Summer FUN 2021 purchases. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with CAC approval.
