Description:
Scarce, Gorgeous 1855 Seated Dollar, PR63 Cameo
1855 $1 PR63 Cameo NGC. Bowers (1993) estimates the total mintage of this proof issue at 40 to 75 pieces, but he adds: "Although Walter H. Breen states in his Encyclopedia on Proof coins that possibly 50 to 60 Proof 1855 silver dollars survive, my experience differs. I believe that fewer were coined and fewer exist today than of the 1854." This Select proof specimen has great eye appeal, aided by rich red-brown and electric-blue peripheral coloration and striking cameo contrast on both sides. Wispy hairlines are noted in the deeply reflective fields, but troublesome contact marks are absent. The devices are crisply defined throughout, even on Liberty's head and hair curls.
