1840 $1 PR63 NGC....
Attractive 1840 Seated Dollar, PR631840 $1 PR63 NGC. Two different reverse dies were used to strike the small number of 1840 silver dollar proofs, both of them sharing the same obverse. This reverse is the same one used for proofs of 1842-52, plainly showing two tiny defects on the right side of the last A in AMERICA. The eagle's claws are unjoined and the arrowheads are disconnected, and the third line of the first shield stripe and the first line of the sixth stripe extend far upward into the horizontal shield lines. Breen's Proof Encyclopedia notes that some of these pieces may have been struck after 1840. This piece displays attractive silver-gray surfaces lightly tinged with gold on both sides. An interesting, fairly thick die crack runs from the field into star 12. Census: 9 in 63, 10 finer (11/09).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24ZP, PCGS# 6981)
