Lot Description
1842 $1 MS64 NGC. CAC. Normal Date, Breen-5428. The Seated Liberty silver dollars of the 1840s were produced at a time when supplies of domestic silver were scarce, and accordingly some issues saw only token mintages, while none could be considered generous. Circulated 1842 Seated dollars are fairly common, but Mint State specimens are seldom seen. Examples in MS64 or finer are quite rare. As of (3/08) NGC has certified only 20 examples in MS64, with none finer. This piece shows the bright, semiprooflike fields that are often encountered on Seated dollars from the 1840s and 1850s. The centers show rich reddish-gray toning and are surrounded by deep blue at the margins. The strike is good but not full, with no obvious marks on either side. From The Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars.
