Lot Description
With an exceedingly low mintage of just 20,000 coins, the 1844 Liberty Seated dollar has always been a key issue. Only rarely are examples offered in Mint State, as here.The motifs are frosty and the fields exhibit pronounced prooflike character. Both surfaces display attractive golden toning. A couple of drift marks (planchet inclusions) can be seen on the reverse. Probably no more than a few dozen Uncirculated examples could be accounted for in collections today.
