Lot 1330

1846-O $5 Liberty. MS-60. Semi-prooflike in the fields with orange-gold luster. Well struck for the date, although there is minor weakness at the center of the obverse on the curl behind Liberty's eye. Rare in all grades with a mintage of 58,000, most seen are in Very Fine or so. Perhaps 10 exist in various grades of About Uncirculated, with this certainly in the top five known of the date. The finest graded by PCGS is MS 62. Minor hairlines in the fields from handling. Frosted devices provide delightful contrast from the reflective fields. A rare opportunity.
