1867 Liberty Seated Dollar. PCGS graded MS-61. Breen-5478. A mostly white example with semi-reflective fields and hints of light toning. A few scattered abrasions in the obverse fields but the overall appearance of the coin is choice for the grade. Well struck with all the stars, Liberty's head and the cap strong. The reverse displays uninterrupted satiny luster. There is light doubling on the E DO. Identified by a small tick mark above the date. This is the rare "1867 over smaller date" variety as described by Walter Breen as "very rare". The half dollar logotype first used for the date has traces left above the 1 and 8 of the date and more traces at the middle of the dollar logotype 1 and 8. A scarce issue, regardless of the variety, often overshadowed by the "hype" associated with the first year status of the 1866 With Motto issue (PCGS # 6960) .
Estimated Value $1,200 - 1,400.
The Michael M. Magdic Collection.

Realized $2,300
