1861-O 50c PCGS/CAC MS65 * None finer at CAC *

DLRC #: 361657 // PCGS #: 6303

Pretty gem with medium album toning. An interesting issue as it represents the last time during the Civil War that the US struck half dollars at the New Orleans mint because Louisiana seceded from the Union. CAC approved for quality and eye appeal. CAC is a third party grading service that grades the grading services (PCGS & NGC) and only approves the best coins in holders. CAC coins have been bringing significant premiums at auctions as more and more collectors are demanding the sticker before they buy.
