Description

Select Proof 1847 Silver Dollar

1847 $1 PR63 NGC. CAC. Medium golden-tan toning dominates both fields, and the borders provide occasional glimpses of electric-blue. The strike is virtually complete, since only the specialist will be able to detect a hint of weakness near the eagle's left shield corner and on the peak of the left (facing) wing. Liberty's knees and the right obverse field exhibit a few delicate slide marks. A beautiful specimen that boasts flashy fields and pleasing eye appeal. Like nearly all proof Seated dollars from the 1840s, the present piece is from the "common reverse" shared die, identified by mint-made defects on the upright of the second A in AMERICA near the crossbar. Bowers (1993) estimated only 20 to 30 proofs were struck.
