1861-O Liberty Seated Half Dollar, Confederate Issue, PCGS XF-40

579.00

One of the coins struck by the Confederate States of America, presumably soon after they took over the New Orleans Mint facility from the State of Louisiana. Catalogued as W-09 in the work by Bill Bugert, based upon research by his associate James Wiley. A solid EF+, perhaps a bit conservatively graded by PCGS. A similar PCGS XF-40 example of this same die pair sold for over $1000 at the June, 2018 Baltimore ANA (Stacks/Bowers #3041). That was perhaps a bit strong ("irrational exuberance" perhaps?), however certainly worth a premium as a genuine example of a coin struck by the CSA.
