1842-O $2.50 Liberty. PCGS graded MS-62. Lovely nice rich golden toning on both sides. In PCGS holder 10818363. The 1842-O ranks among the rarest dates from the New Orleans Mint in this series, and this lovely Mint State is definitely high grade for the issue. The strike is bold on Liberty's curls around her face, and, where poor definition on the eagle's neck, thigh and claws is usual, this exemplary coin shows sharp detail. Almost impossible to find so nice, and especially in Uncirculated condition. The bulk of the mintage of 19,800 must have gone into circulation except for a few collector's coins which are in Choice or lower mint state grades. This particular coin is identifiable by a thin arcing scuff in the luster to the left of the left wing. Pop 5; 1 finer in 63. (PCGS # 7726) .
Estimated Value $11,000 - 13,000.

Realized $13,225
