    1840 Silver Dollar, PR62
    First Seated Liberty Proof

    1840 $1 PR62 NGC. No Mint records have been found on the number of proof Seated Liberty dollars produced in 1840. Except for a small emission of Gobrecht dollars issued in the 1836-1839 time period (and restruck later), no silver dollars had been struck at the U.S. Mint since 1804 (actually dated 1803). Experts believe the 1840 proof total was probably on the order of 20-30 coins. Apparently the dollars were available both in sets and as single pieces.
    The present coin is a sharply detailed MS62 specimen with glossy surfaces toned in shades of gray, green, and cerulean-blue. A minor rim bruise shows on the obverse at 9 o'clock. Census: 5 in 62, 20 finer (5/11).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24ZP, PCGS# 6981)
