1867-S $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded MS-61. Lightly toned on both sides. Lustrous and frosty. An outstanding, dare we stretch and say dazzling, specimen of a variety which is usually encountered only well worn, and for which even an About Uncirculated would be a notable rarity! The 1867-S obverse has the date logotype high, but with both digits clear of the truncation and each about the same distance from it. The reverse is of the Type I die, as expected. There is some lightness of strike at the eagle's leg to the left. The mintmark is of medium size and is situated upright, compactly so as not to overlap any other design elements. Only 28,000 struck. Pop 8; 1 finer in 62 (PCGS # 7806) .
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,300.

Realized $3,565
