1854 Seated Half Dollar (MS64) - What W-B Variety?
I'm hoping one of you can tell me the Wiley-Bugert number for this coin, and anything particularly of interest with that variety. There appears to be a die crack running from the "T" in "UNITED" down to the wing, and then continuing to the leg. Could this help identify the WB variety?
There is tremendous weakness on the reverse around the claw on the left (as we face the Eagle), as well as the fletching on the end of the arrows. Since PCGS graded this MS64, apparently this is not wear, but a weakness in the strike. Does this WB variety have anything to do with that?
