Description

1845 Seated Liberty Dollar, PR61
Less Than 20 Minted

1845 $1 PR61 PCGS. Q. David Bowers estimates an original mintage of 15-20 proof Seated Liberty dollars in 1845. The issue is very rare today, and Walter Breen believed no more than 10 specimens were extant when he studied the series in the 1970s. Recent population data reveals PCGS has graded only this specimen in MS61, with six finer, while NGC has certified no coins in this grade, with nine finer (6/10).
The present piece is a charming PR61 example, with sharp strike details throughout and mottled blue and gray toning. The brightly reflective fields shine through the toning when the coin is angled in the light. Only minor handling marks are evident, all consistent with the grade.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24ZV, PCGS# 6986)
