1845-D $2.50 Liberty. PCGS graded MS-61. Well struck and lustrous with natural sunset golden toning. Scarce low mintage date as only 19,460 were struck. This beauty fits high within the condition census. Typically found VF to EF, with AU specimens seen as well, it is always a pleasure for us to offer a consigned Mint State example of this popular branch mint issue. On the 1845 issue, the obverse date logotype is situated close to and nearly touching the neck truncation, and notably separated from dentils below, but still close. Inspection shows that the date is punched more deeply into the die at the first part than toward the end, reflective of "by hand" processes in die making in those years. As usual, the D mintmark overlaps an arrow feather, but with no traces of the feather within the opening. Pop 2; 2 in 62, 1 in 63 (PCGS # 7738) .
Estimated Value $12,000 - 13,000.

Realized $12,075
