1851 Liberty Seated Silver Dollar. OC-1. Rarity-5. AU-58 (PCGS).This is a significant, highly desirable near-Mint State example of the low mintage, key date 1851 silver dollar. Lovely surfaces exhibit dominant silver and olive-gray iridescence, with vivid undertones of mottled powder blue and reddish-rose. The strike is sharp throughout and there is intense frosty to semi-reflective luster evident.

The trend toward smaller circulation strike production of silver dollars that began in 1850 continued in 1851, with an even lower mintage of 1,300 pieces. There was so little bullion in the hands of merchants and other brokers, and such limited demand for new silver dollars during the early 1850s, that the 1851 may be one of the few Liberty Seated issues struck on government account. No contemporary documentation has come to light that would either support or refute this claim. What is certain, however, is that most examples succumbed to melting, either after immediate export or upon repatriation to the United States during the 1850s. The very few survivors - and these number only 40 to 65 coins, perhaps no more than 30 distinct examples - were primarily obtained from domestic bullion holdings during the late 1850s when numismatics as a hobby first became widely popular in the United States. Collectors were aware of restrikes by 1859, confirming that the rarity of the 1851 had already been established. Restrikes of other desirable silver dollars, such as the 1836 and 1839, also first emerged during the late 1850s, at which time examples of those original Gobrecht issues were also targeted for withdrawal from commerce and numismatic preservation.

By the time they were set aside, however, most 1851 dollars had already become impaired through commercial use. Others were subsequently mishandled by early owners, with the result that this is an extremely challenging issue to locate with strong eye appeal. This is one of the nicest that we have handled in quite some time, and will be just right for an advanced collection of silver dollars or Liberty Seated coinage.PCGS# 6939.
