Thought I'd put up four different seated half collars tonight and see how you all grade them. Should be interesting. I don't own them (yet) but figured they may be good for a fun grading guesses here at CCF

Edited...Opps reverse rim looked square to me...changed to MS after reading Ty2020b's post...thanks Ty...I'm always "still learning"..
I'm by no means a pro and will never claim to be...just my 2 cents

The rims look somewhat squared...little chatter on the right obverse and a tick.
The reverse detail is fantastic.
I'm with Greasy Fingers PF64/64+
Beautiful coin!

I find this the most difficult coin to grade. To me, it can either be AU58 or MS63.

Looked at the pics...and the way the question was asked

Thought it was a trick question and replied before doing any research...
So instead of PF...because there aren't any MS64/64+
This was a good wake-up call for me.
Thanks!

Okay since the guesses have died off it's time to reveal the grades.

The key is none of the four half dollars I posted are proof, they are all business strikes, though two of them (#3 & #4) look a lot like proof coins. Also all were submitted for CAC and only one got approval (that one might surprise you).

This coin has a nice pedigree coming from the fairly well known collection built by by Dick Osburn.

This one is PCGS Cert #19510651 MS62 (NO CAC)
