Choice Proof 1850 Seated Dollar1850 PR 63 NGC. 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. Although moderately hairlined, the fields are still deeply reflective. Each side is richly toned in shades of cobalt-blue and gray with vague undertones of rose. There is a series of intermittent vertical field marks on the right side of the obverse, the most noticeable of which is just to the right of Liberty's arm. Population: 1 in 63, 6 finer (4/95). (NGC ID# 2522, PCGS# 6991)
