DESCRIPTION
Exceptional Gem 1885 Half Dollar MS-65 (PCGS) CAC
Just 3 Finer at CAC

1885 Liberty Seated Half Dollar. MS-65 (PCGS). CAC.
An absolutely beautiful and undoubtedly original piece. The lovely peach and tan patina reveals powder-blue and golden toning beneath a light source. Nicely struck with intense satiny luster in the fields. Among the finest of only about 150 Mint State examples known, and just 3 rank higher at CAC.
The 1885 among a series of low mintage circulation strike half dollars that dominate the final years of the long-running Liberty Seated half dollar series. In the specific case of this year, the Philadelphia Mint produced just 5,200 half dollars in circulation strike format, survivors of which are rarer and offered far less frequently than those of the year's 930-piece Proof delivery. This is especially true of any Uncirculated survivors, and even more so for high grade Gem examples as here.

PCGS# 6367.NGC ID: 24KY.

PCGS Population: 11; 12 finer. CAC Population: 4; 3 finer.
