Description

1850 PR 60 ANACS. Open 5. While 1850 proof dollars are rare, there were apparently additional proofs struck at a later date for collectors who needed an example of this low total mintage issue. These coins show a die crack through the bottom of the date and have high knife-rims. This coin lacks these characteristics and we must presume this is an original proof, and one of the 40-60 pieces believed struck in that year. The fields of this coin are deeply reflective, but much of that reflectivity has been obscured by rather heavy, almost opaque, russet-brown toning that covers most of each side. Carbon spots are noted on each side which also help limit the grade of the coin. Still, a very rare early proof and sure to be of interest to the many collectors of Seated dollars. (NGC ID# 2522, PCGS# 6991)
