Exquisite Seated Liberty Design by James Longacre

She holds a pole that has a Liberty cap at the top with one hand and balances a union shield with the other. Inscriptions on this face read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "1872."

Reverse: On the reverse, which was also designed by Longacre, the coin's face value, "HALF DIME," is inscribed in large font in the center. It is encircled by a wreath.
