Variety 2; ONE YEAR ONLY type with RAYS! Arrows at date (1853-55) If you have to have just one seated Liberty half - this is it! The rays make it particularly gorgeous. This variety had a reduced weight from the normal 13.36 gm.
In 1853, the United States Congress decided to put an end to the lack of small change by means of a monetary reform. The silver content of the coins was reduced and thus the metal they contained was worth less than the nominal value of the coin itself. The gold coins continued to circulate with the same gold content, so that gold coins became the prevailing currency of the USA.
