1842 Liberty Seated Dollar, Choice Very Fine, Nice Color

A nice problem free example, with attractive toning highlights. Equivalent to what will certify VF-30 - a little stronger than that overall, however the top of the Eagle’s left (facing) wing, neck and head show a bit of striking weakness, so based upon my own experience with submissions, most likely to be netted down five points to 30 as a consensus grade. Food for thought: this is considered the most common No Motto date of the series, however as few as 4,000 coins in all, circ and Unc, are estimated to survive by PCGS (perhaps 5,000 estimated by Bowers). Compare that to the “rare” 1909-S VDB Cent, which has a PCGS Population of over HALF the low estimate in MS-64 Red and above; more than the high estimate if you throw in Red Brown coins! I know that it is certainly relative, however the Seated Dollar series is one of the true undervalued/underrated large coin series’ in U. S. Numismatics, just based upon simple numbers.
