Around 600 1868 Liberty Seated half dollars were struck in Proof condition; only about 500 of these coins survive and most do not exhibit the contrast seen on the present coin. Most are in grades of Proof-65 and lower, frequently without the Cameo designation. The featured coin is being offered as Lot 4092 in the Rarities Night session of Stack’s Bowers Galleries’ August 2021 Official Auction of the ANA World’s Fair of Money.
