Mint State 1848 Silver Dollar
Just 15,000 Pieces Struck

1848 $1 MS61 PCGS. The 1848 Seated dollar has a mintage of only 15,000 pieces and many examples were undoubtedly melted circa 1850, when the bullion value exceeded face due to the California Gold Rush. The present representative displays light straw-gold and ice-blue toning. The strike is sharp except on star 8 and Liberty's hair. Only lightly abraded aside from moderate marks on the upper reverse field.
Ex: Cincinnati Central States (Heritage, 4/2009), lot 891, which realized $5,175.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24YK, PCGS# 6935)
