Bright and lustrous, but we do note that there are several bagmarks on this specimen, expected for the grade. History tells us that 6,000 of these were released in the Treasury house cleaning of 1962-3 and these mint state coins entered the numismatic marketplace. Most were pretty nicked up, after over 100 years of inventories and shuffling about by bank guards and vault cleanings, as seen here. Nevertheless, this date would be virtually unobtainable in mint state were it not for this hoard, which gives many collectors a chance to own a brand new silver dollar struck before the Civil War. This one is sharply struck, and quite flashy. <BR>Estimated Value $700 - 750.
