Flowing Hair Half Dollar Value Facts:
Date – Mint Rarity:
All of the dates are rare and will be worth at least $800 and up.
Mintage is just the original amount reported by the US Mint of how many they were supposed to mint. It’s not an indication of how many have survived today since many have been lost, buried, and melted.
On average the S mint mark (San Francisco Mint) coins are most rare and valuable but there’s other dates and mints worth a premium.
Grade – Condition:
The grade of a coin is it’s condition and the better the grade the more the coin is worth, and some Seated Half Dollars are worth much more because they’re rare in uncirculated grades.
