Lot Description
1853 $1 MS64 NGC. Light apricot patina endows this shimmering near-Gem. Nicely struck, although the eagle's plumage and the right side stars are not completely brought up by the dies. Virtually free from contact, and with impressive eye appeal as a result. The upper reverse field has a subdued appearance and minute planchet flaws, as made. Just 46,110 pieces were struck, and Mint State pieces are far fewer than required to satisfy the demands of specialists and type set collectors. Population: 15 in 64, 3 finer (3/04).
