Gem 1847 Seated Liberty Dollar

1847 $1 MS65 NGC. The 1847 (140,750 pieces produced) is the most plentiful Seated Dollar in Mint State from the 1840s. Most Uncirculated coins, however, grade no finer than MS63, and the present representative is one of just four Gems known to NGC and PCGS (1/02). The fields are striated (as produced) with shimmering reflectivity that is evident at virtually all angles. A light overlay of golden iridescence is seen on both sides with slightly deeper olive-gray hues in a few of the more protected areas around the obverse rim. There is little to complain about regarding the strike, all major features exhibiting an exactness of definition that is not often seen on coins of the type. Accuracy does, however, compel us to mention some slight bluntness of detail on stars 8-13 and at the top of the eagle's left (facing) wing. An attractive coin in all regards, and an accurately graded Gem. (NGC ID# 24YJ, PCGS# 6934)
