Description

    Near-Gem 1853 Dollar

    1853 $1 MS64 PCGS. The 1853 is one of the more available of the No Motto Seated Dollars in Uncirculated grades. The quantity of survivors at that level, however, is still quite low due to widespread circulation and heavy melting. This fully lustrous survivor is essentially untoned. The strike is well executed save for the normal softness on the right (facing) obverse stars and the top of the eagle's right wing. A few scattered marks on the obverse portrait, including an unobtrusive pinscratch on Liberty's right leg, appear to be the primary grade limiting factor. Population: 7 in 64, 1 finer (6/05).(#6941)(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24YS, PCGS# 6941)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
