1842 Seated 50C WB-12 Medium, triple punched date.

Lucked into this coin locally today...all I can say. Glad I'm friends with the local coin shop owner, a pawn shop owner came in selling some coins he had aquired over the years, and after the shop owner was finished buying (of which he'd picked up a fine details 1795 half dime), he allowed me to pick up some stuff from the guy. 4 Carson city Morgan's, a half dime, and a few other randoms.

obverse AU reverse XF. the coin is flat and lifeless for a mid-AU coin. appears to be some corrosion on the obverse along the arm. I think she's been cleaned and probably would be in a details slab

The date appears to be an RPD with a die crack.
Plus there appears to be a die crack through Liberty's head.
And finally a nice die crack on the reverse.

The coin has LOTS of personality.
Mid-AU.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Does look flat, could just be the pics, but it looks cleaned.

I'm going AU Details, nice die cracks!

Pretty decent strike. @panzaldi already noted the obverse corrosion. If the cleaning had retoned a bit more, I would say it could be market acceptable. It's just a bit too fresh for that. My first reaction was AU-53 details, but I could be talked into AU-55 details here.

Must agree with the crowd, AU details (cleaned).
