Description

1842 Seated Liberty Silver Dollar. MS-62 (PCGS).

As one of the more frequently encountered Seated Dollars from the 1840s, the 1842 is a perennial favorite among type collectors seeing an example of the No Motto design. The coin we offer here is conditionally scarce at the BU grade level, and it is a very attractive coin in all regards. We note bright, satin-white luster to both sides that also includes modest semi-reflective tendencies in the fields. Light scuffiness to the surfaces precludes a Choice grade, but there are no abrasions that we deem worthy of individual attention. Bold-to-sharp in strike, with a blazing silver-white sheen that threatens to burst through the holder.

PCGS#: 6928
