    'Quad Stripes' 1844 Seated Dollar, MS63
    Low Mintage of 20,000 Pieces

    1844 $1 MS63 PCGS. CAC. Breen-5431. "Quad Stripes," so-called for the quadrupled obverse shield stripes and doubled outline. The reverse shows crisscrossing die lines between the eagle's left (facing) upper wing and neck. The amount of bullion that flowed into the Philadelphia Mint in 1844 was meager enough to preclude a large production of silver dollars.
    This attractive coin displays a moderately prooflike, brilliant finish, unsurprising given the minuscule mintage of 20,000 business strikes. The prominent doubling on the obverse shield is characteristic of the issue. The strike is above-average for the series, with minimal flatness visible on the eagle's neck and leg feathers. A few grade-defining abrasions appear, mostly confined to the reverse fields. A truly rare coin worthy of a strong bid. Population: 9 in 63, 2 finer (6/12).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2005), lot 6653, which realized $14,950.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24YE, PCGS# 6930)
