1855-S Seated Liberty Half Dollar

Well, I have filled this tough key date hole in the Dansco Album… I know its not pretty, but its a good date to acquire…

The cool story about this one is that I had opportunity to purchase about 3 months ago and hesitated just long enough to miss it. But, I was able to find it again in the marketplace and snag it thanks to a heads up from a friend!

Would love to see some more 55-S from the group!!

    Not mine but a friend’s ( @OriginalDan ). Many will see it as damaged but its trip to the Orient (which was common for silver from San Francisco from the era) is what saved it not to mention added an incredible back story. If coins are artifacts of time, I think having additional clues to their provenance adds to their allure. Bet it is by far the highest grade example posted here being UNC details chop mark

    This is one of my all time favorite forum coins 👍

    I had an ef 1855-S half many years ago, but it was harshly cleaned, so I sold it.
