1842 Liberty Seated Silver Dollar. MS-64 (PCGS). OGH.

Choice Mint State 1842 Seated Dollar

A satiny and lustrous pale champagne-gold example with somewhat prooflike fields in places. The devices are sharp for the date and type with no prominent softness to be seen. Like most dates in the Liberty Seated dollar design type, thew 1842 is somewhat scarce in Mint State grades, and on the rare side in Choice Mint State, as here. The preponderance of MS-64 grading events  at MS-64 on the PCGS roster leads us to believe there has been some resubmissions in the eternal quest for a finer grade -- and a finer pay day at time of sale. A choice and appealing specimen whose quality will be recognized at bidding time.
