This low-mintage Philadelphia No Motto issue is a better date in all grades, and is particularly tough in the MS grades. Because of financial upheaval related to the Civil War, production of Silver Dollars in Philadelphia was limited through most of the year, with sizable deliveries being made only twice, in July and August. As a result, 1862 saw only 11,540 dollars produced.
Of this small mintage, a mere 100 are estimated to remain in mint condition. While somewhat attainable in grades up to MS-64, Gem examples are thought to number in the low single digits.
