Description

A Second Proof 1854 Seated Liberty Dollar

1854 $1 PR64 NGC. This coin was struck from the same obverse die (triangular shaped defect in the field above and after the 5 in the date) as the preceding example. The reverse die is that described by Bowers in his 1993 reference, and it is identifiable by scattered die file marks that slant down to the right in the reverse shield. Both sides are lightly patinated in golden-gray colors through which pleasing reflectivity shines at most angles. There are no outwardly distracting hairlines or other handling marks, and the strike is full in all areas. A shallow, squiggly planchet flaw (as struck) and a series of faint planchet streaks (also as produced) in the lower right obverse field are mentioned for pedigree purposes. There are also several small, dark spots scattered throughout the reverse, none of which are individually distracting. A second opportunity for the advanced collector to acquire an example of this elusive 1850s proof issue.
Ex: October 2000 Pre-Long Beach Sale (Superior, 10/00), lot 4395, where it realized $19,550. (NGC ID# 2528, PCGS# 6997)
