1840 $1 PCGS MS63+ ex: D.L. Hansen

Very Scarce Date in Mint State

Fantastic mint state example of this scarce issue! Impressively preserved surfaces display flashy luster and only minor signs of contact. The design elements exhibit pinpoint definition throughout. This is the first official year of silver dollar coinage since the hiatus taken after Bust dollars were struck in 1803. PCGS+ grade for premium quality at the top of end of the assigned grade. The Hansen Collection holds one of the four finest known examples for the date, a MS64.
