NEWP, Frosty for Friday 1888 Seated Liberty Half for my type set.

Frosty and white with some champagne tones in the fields. Meant to replace my current example(s), but now I'm thinking I should just keep them for "posterity" :p ... 1888 with 12,001 minted, but is kinda relatively high considering the mintages in the 5,000's for adjacent years. Anyway, a nice upgrade to the type set that I'm informally clobbering together as my eye (and wallet) sees fit.

GTG if you'd like. Happy Friday!

    Cobble together, don't clobber the poor coins! :)

    Congratulations! MS63?

    Love the die break. Is that Liberty’s arm on the reverse?

    The reverse looks gemmy. Few hits on the obverse I think would keep it 63 or under. I'll say 62+

    There’s some clash going on for sure. No die breaks that I can see in hand.

    Sorry. Meant clash. An overlay would be interesting. Some folks on here know how to do that.
    Anyway nice coin. I would say 64. I like the seated halves from the 80s. When I was putting my set together, I saw some really nice pieces in those dates.

    Nice strong die clash near Liberty's arm. Nice luster.

    Late to the game, but 64 is a fair grade. Nice coin... don't 'clobber' it. :D Cheers, RickO
