Got this seated beauty on a very short hunt after work, just before the sunset. My second seated half and this one is in a much better condition than my first one. Couldn't be happier as early US silver isn't that common over here, especially in top shape.

Aureus,

Very nice find, still awaiting finding my first one. As a note, the coin goes for around $48 in G4 condition and $73 in F12. Good luck with your hunts. Walt

Thanks for the info.

Something is not right here. You live in Canada and have found two US Seated Liberty half dollars.
I have been hunting in the United States for 35 years, and have yet to find one. Yes, something is definitely wrong here :dontknow:

Congrats on a beautiful coin :thumbsup:

Thanks Steve. I'm in a very similar situation when it comes to Canadian halves, never found one, even a modern type.

Okay, that kind of early US silver is not a common find down here either. Congrats!
