Description & Analysis

This is yet another rarity in the Seated Liberty Dollar series, with an estimate 15 pieces extant. This figure is based on certified population data and may include some duplicate submissions.

Most survivors are in less than gem condition, though at least two are known at that level. The finest specimen is the former Eliasberg Collection coin. A few have been certified as PF Cameo, but this quality is rarely seen on proofs of the 1840s.

A single die pair was used for proofs, and this utilized the veteran reverse die of 1840. As the currency strikes likewise used a single, but different, die pair, it is easy to distinguish between MS and PF strikes. The former display a doubled obverse and a misplaced date, features not seen on the proofs.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
