Lot 1658

1850-O Liberty Seated Quarter Dollar. PCGS graded MS-63. Well struck with medium golden toning on the obverse in diagonal stripes with frosty white luster beneath. Normally found with weak denticles and stars, as seen here, the 1850-O suffered mass melting in the 1853-55 period when the mint reduced the weight slightly of our silver coins under the bi-metallic monetary system then in vogue. Pop 5; 1 in 64 as best by PCGS (PCGS # 5416) .
Estimated Value $3,000 - 4,000.
