Lot Description
1859-O Liberty Seated Silver Dollar. AU-58 (NGC). An unusual occurrence in today's numismatic marketplace, an 1859-O silver dollar that <em>isn't</em> one of the fully brilliant examples from the Treasury releases of the early 1960s. Deep steel gray surfaces exhibit robust electric blue and rose iridescence, especially under a bright light source. Somewhat prooflike on the reverse. The devices are sharp and the surfaces are free from marks that draw the viewer's attention. A pleasing example overall.
