NGC - The nearly 150-year-old coin, which was struck on a wrong-sized planchet, was sold by GreatCollections.

An incredible error coin certified by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) realized $51,754 at an auction by GreatCollections. The coin was erroneously struck on a smaller planchet intended for a quarter and is believed to be unique for the Seated Liberty half dollar series.

The coin, struck in the 1870s, was recently discovered in a collection that had been held by the Wheeler Family of New Jersey for decades. After the current owner inherited the collection, they were unsure of its authenticity and decided to submit it to NGC for certification. NGC graded the coin NGC Mint Error AU 50 and pedigreed it to the Wheeler Family.

Didn't the guys on the OP thread figure out the year? I thought it was 1874-S w/ Arrows.
