1840 Liberty Seated Silver Dollar. MS-62 (PCGS). OGH. Lustrous deep steel surfaces, somewhat prooflike in appearance, spring to life with bright gold and blue iridescence in a bright light source. The strike is bold with sharp, full design motifs throughout. One of 61,005 examples of the date struck in the first year of the design type. Choice for the grade with no marks to assail the viewer's eye, and an ideal candidate for an advanced U.S. type collection or Liberty Seated dollar cabinet.
