1842-O 50C Medium Date MS62 NGC
WB-102, R.3. Handsome toning of russet-gold to the centers and framed in rich teal around the rims. Lustrous fields enhance the appeal, and minimal surface marks are found when examined. The strike is reasonably sharp and this is a scarce issue when found so well preserved. As these initial Seated half dollars were examined, it was determined that the reverse lettering should be larger, so larger letters were introduced early on, which are found on the present coin. These helped to protect the fields and support the rim as well, increasing the expected circulation time for these important half dollars. NGC Census: 4 in 62, 6 finer (MS67 finest). (PCGS 6242)
