Description:
1840 Seated Liberty Dollar, MS62
First-Year Type Coin, Prooflike Fields
Ex: Eliasberg
1840 $1 MS62 PCGS. The Seated Liberty dollar made its debut in 1840, with a mintage of 61,005 pieces. The issue attracted little attention at the time, and few specimens were saved in Mint State. Coins at the MS62 level are rare, and the present piece has an impressive history to complement its desirable grade. This example can be traced to the Eliasberg Collection, the only complete collection of U.S. coins ever formed. The Eliasberg pedigree is a byword for quality.
The present coin displays attractive gold and silver-gray toning, with sharp strike details throughout, and considerable eye appeal. The surfaces are brightly reflective and prooflike under the toning. Housed in an old green label holder. Population: 18 in 62, 13 finer (6/10).
Ex: John G. Mills Collection (S.H. and H. Chapman, 4/1904); John M. Clapp; John H. Clapp, Louis Eliasberg in 1942 via Stack's; Eliasberg Collection (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 2204, realized $7,150.
From The Dr. Brandon Smith Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24YA, PCGS# 6926)
