Lot 1618
1845. NGC graded MS-61. Nice even toning on both sides. Substantial detail to the highpoints on this fine example, although an ineffectual imprint was left in a few areas by the recoil of the dies such as the left leg on the eagle, portions of the upper left wing, and mild weakness on the neck feathers and shield "chief" (the upper horizontal lines). Original antique-finish toning commingling gray with lovely medium golden hues. The surfaces very choice for what is nominally a lower echelon MS61 grade. Far too few Seated Dollars have this coins obvious attractiveness and originality! Pop 7; 9 finer, 5 in 62, 3 in 63, 1 in 64. Estimated Value $7,500 - 8,000

1847. NGC graded MS-62. Light gold toning on both sides. An attractive Mint State specimen with the kind of quality one likes to see for this actively collected early No Motto series design. Soft, all-encompassing luster blends naturally with pale golden highlights on the satin surfaces. Pop 24; 31 finer, 1 in 62+, 20 in 63, 9 in 64, 1 in 65. Estimated Value $2,800 - 2,900

Lot 1621
1849. NGC graded MS-61. Nice old time toning. Neutral gray to smoky gold toning over relatively bagmark-free surfaces. Since half dollar coinage was more popular with the public and businessmen in this period, the Mint received orders for very few Silver Dollars in 1849 and the other years in the 1840s. Estimated Value $2,400 - 2,500

Lot 1622
1850-O. NGC graded EF-45. Light golden toning. The 1850-O is one of the favorite issues in the entire Seated Dollar series. Federal records report a not overly generous mintage of 40,000 pieces, and domestic circulation throughout the South before the Civil War undoubtedly took a serious toll on this delivery. Examples are scarce in all grades. The '50-O is also a prime condition rarity, since even AU coins being elusive in today's market. Add to this the fact that so many 1850-O Dollars have been cleaned and one can easily understand the desirability of the very appealing, still-lustrous Extremely Fine 45 example offered here. Estimated Value $1,500 - 1,600

1859-O. PCGS graded MS-61. Mostly untoned. Typical bagmarks, with frosty white luster. Most BU 1859-O and 1860-O Silver Dollars trace to several bags which the Treasury Department released to the general public in the 1960s. Hence, a popular collector date due to availability and frostiness (PCGS # 6947) Estimated Value $1,200 - 1,300

1860-O. PCGS graded MS-62. Nicely toned with reflective fields. The surface is quite nice on this handsome specimen, with far fewer bagmarks than generally seen on 1860-O.

Choice throughout (PCGS # 6950) Estimated Value $2,300 - 2,400

1860-O. ICG graded MS-63. Our grade is MS60+. Bright and frosty with the normal allotment of contact marks for the grade. The New Orleans mint struck three dates in this series, which ran from 1840 to 1873. These are 1846-O, 1850-O, 1859-O, and 1860-O. The latter two are the most often seen due to some old hoards that were discovered fifty or more years ago and distributed into the marketplace. Ideal for use in a U.S. 19th Century Type set (PCGS # 6950) Estimated Value $2,000 - 2,500

Lot 1631
1871-CC. PCGS graded VF-30. Light even grey toning. Popular "CC" mint dollar. The 1871-CC lays claim to the lowest mintage in the Carson City Seated Dollar series with a small total of 1,376 pieces produced. Perhaps surprisingly, the '71-CC ranks only second in rarity after the final-year 1873-CC. This is because whereas melting in the Mint claimed many 1873-CC Silver Dollars, the 1871-CC was distributed into domestic circulation. That said, the 1871-CC issue is still an extreme rarity with perhaps just 85-125 coins extant in the various circulated grades (per Bowers, 1993). Mint State survivors number just a few pieces at both major grading services combined.

This original-looking example displays old-silver color with a few darker toned spot evident here and there toward the lower obverse and within the shield. The devices are quite nicely struck, including the often softness to the detail over Liberty's head and a few of the surrounding stars. Normal wear for the VF30 qualification. A no-questions highlight of the Seated Dollar series (PCGS # 6967) Estimated Value $8,000 - 8,500
