1854 Liberty Seated Dollar. PCGS graded AU-55 PQ. A charming Seated dollar from an era notorious for scarce and undervalued issues. In 1854, 33,140 Seated dollars were minted at Philadelphia. The survival rate from that original mintage is quite low and known examples are pretty much evenly distributed across the entire grade spectrum. This specimen has soft white surfaces with mint state detail. There are some light hairlines on both the obverse and reverse from an old cleaning. A small reed mark exists in the right field as well as a small patch of shallow scratches near star 13. While housed in an old PCGS green label, fat letter AU-55 holder, we feel this piece has the look of an uncirculated coin and we are sure you will agree. PCGS has graded 10 in AU-55 with 37 finer (PCGS # 6942) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,500.
The Michael M. Magdic Collection.

Realized $6,900
