1850 $1 Dollar Liberty Seated, No Motto PCGS MS63 (CAC)


We LOVE this super choice example of a really UNDERrated tough date. This coin is from the LRCA 07/2022 Sale. The description was:


This is a truly spectacular and CHOICE example of this low mintage date. As gold flooded the economy from California, the ratio of gold to silver went out of balance, and the price of silver rose. Many silver dollars were exported and melted down for bullion. Mint State survivors of this low mintage are VERY RARE, EXCESSIVELY so any finer.

Highly Prooflike lustrous fields really pop dramatically in the light. The underlying flashy brilliance enhances the rich, multicolored, dappled iridescent toning. Depending on the angle the light hits the surfaces, variegated lilac, dove, pewter, gold, olive, coppery-orange, slate, and antique silver pop. We love the look of this very CHOICE and totally original 1850 dollar. The details are crisp and show off full, razor sharp definition. The eye appeal is exceptional in every way and the more we look at this highly alluring example, the more we love it! Only a few tiny contact marks keep this from an even loftier state of preservation.

Ex Heritage, July 2014, lot 3808, as NGC MS64 CAC

PCGS 8, NGC 7, CAC 3. The other CAC-approved examples have sold in the $10,000-$20,000 range, this one around the mid-point as NGC MS64 CAC at $14,688. The current PCGS Price Guide value is listed at $17,500 and the CAC CPG value is $21,600. There are just four coins graded higher at PCGS, 2 in MS63+ and 2 in MS64 (the last one of these sold back in 2004!). To look at this coin is to fall in love, we have and you will too.

New notes: this coin realized $18,800.00 in the sale. CAC has beaned only 2 coins finer. If either PCGS CAC popped up for sale, it would be at least $40-$50,000.00. We do really like this coin and want it to reside in a great collection. It deserves it!
