You are way off.Very nice! They made 1.3 million of them, not very many by today's standards. Approx value is $100.
Your assessment, not mine.You are way off.
The value of this coin is exponentially more than that.
In fact a minimum of TEN times that.
I am not sure of the background concerning the house cleaning you where doing when you found the coin .But there is no doubt it was your lucky day It looks like a really nice coin in excellent condition . Thanks for posting .Clearing out some boxes in an old house I found this 1839 coin. I’ve never found anything even close to this old so pretty excited. Can anyone give me information on the coin?

If this were real... the condition would have dictated a LOW end of MS58 - which which in current market (what they are selling for TODAY and have been recently) value of $1,100.Your assessment, not mine.
I looked at this once again, and I'm going with a COPY.There's a couple of varieties to the 1839
Though I have looked at a lot of images and there is an extra leaf on this coin.
I must be missing something here.

It is no way a MS58. I think you are looking at the values of a seated half of the same year. Believe what you wantIf this were real... the condition would have dictated a LOW end of MS58 - which which in current market (what they are selling for TODAY and have been recently) value of $1,100.
And IMO... this would grade higher than that.
$3,350 IF touched into an MS63... which possibly would have been seeable by SOME graders.
MS62 = $2,000
MS61 = $1,500
MS60 = $1,350
Don't fret... there are collectors of these copies /fakes as well.
