Description:
Desirable 1851 Restrike Seated Dollar, Ex: Amon Carter Jr.
1851 $1 Restrike PR64 PCGS. Beautiful sea-green and golden-brown colors adorn the margins of this desirable near-Gem Seated Dollar. The original toning pattern matches its color plate in the Carter auction catalog. Thorough evaluation reveals a few faint hairlines, but this intricately struck specimen has undeniably impressive eye appeal, and is certified in an old green label holder.
In his 1993 reference to Silver Dollars, Q. David Bowers states, "the existing of true [original] proofs is doubtful, and those attributed as such in the past are now believed to be prooflike business strikes." Thus, all proof 1851 Seated Dollars are restrikes, identified as such by the slightly lower placement of the date beneath the rock. Unlike the comparatively generous mintage of 1859 and later proof dates, Bowers estimates that only 50 to 100 proofs were struck dated 1851. High grade survivors are made even more desirable by the rarity of original 1851 business strikes, which are even tougher to find than their low mintage of 1,300 pieces would suggest. Assembling a set of proof Seated Dollars is a formidable numismatic challenge, yet a surprising number of collectors attempt to do so, no doubt because of the beauty of the Seated Liberty design in large proof format. Population: 2 in 64, 1 finer (6/05).
Ex: Amon G. Carter, Jr. Family Collection (Stack's, 1/84), lot 260.
