Liberty Seated Half Dollar 1839 - 1891

The Seated Liberty Half Dollar was introduced in 1839 and would be minted until 1891. The same basic design had previously been adopted on the half dime in 1837 and the quarter in 1838. The design would also be used for the silver dollar starting in 1840. Similar to the other denominations, the half dollar would undergo a series of minor design and specification changes, resulting in the creation of different subtypes within the broader series. With production taking place over the course of more than five decades across four mint facilities, issues range from common to extremely rare with a number of intriguing varieties included.
