1853 $2.50 Liberty. PCGS graded MS-64 PQ. Old green holder. Lovely rich golden toning. The surfaces are bright with peach to reddish tinted luster and show none of the muting often seen on early P-mint dates. Better still, the imprint that was left by the dies shows complete detail on the main devices (including the stars), a stand-out for the 1853 date. It has a wonderful clear sharp strike, in fact. Pop 62; 5 finer; 4 in 65; 1 in 66. (PCGS # 7767) .

A snaking die crack connects the first star with the bottoms of the date numerals.
Estimated Value $1,600 - 1,700.

Realized $2,990
