1857 Liberty Seated Dollar. PCGS graded MS-60. A fresh and high quality example of an issue that has a deceptively high mintage of 94,000. Untoned and satiny surfaces display some minor hairlines from an old, light cleaning. The luster is fantastic and smooth, similar to that of a MS-62 or above. The fields of this underrated date in mint state are delightful and appealing. Well struck and unquestionably mint state. We note a small tick mark in the horizontal lines of the shield and a portion of a reed mark just below Liberty's right knee. On the reverse there is a reed mark just below the eagle's beak. The 1857 is similar to the 1856 in rarity and is only slightly more available in mint state. We are sure many dedicated dollar specialists will appreciate this fresh offering. Housed in an old PCGS green label, fat letter holder. PCGS population of 4 in MS-60, 4 in MS-61, 14 in MS-62, 9 in MS-63 and 6 in MS-64 as finest. (PCGS # 6945) .
Estimated Value $1,700 - 1,850.
The Michael M. Magdic Collection.

Realized $4,888
