Select Proof 1855 Seated Dollar Rarity

1855 $1 PR63 NGC. The proof 1855 Seated Dollar is another rare issue in a series of noteworthy rarities. It is unlikely that the Mint delivered more than 30-40 proof sets this year, as well as an unknown, but presumably limited number of additional proof Silver Dollars. NGC and PCGS have seen just 25 proof Dollars of this date, all of which grade between PR61 and PR65 (1/02). This is a uniformly reflective representative with brightness that is evident at direct angles. The outward appearance is one of medium intensity dove-gray patina with splashes of champagne-apricot iridescence here and there. The strike is razor sharp throughout, the number of wispy hairlines is consistent with the grade. A small planchet streak (as struck) in the reverse field below the NI in UNITED is noted for pedigree purposes.
There is only one known obverse die for this issue, and it is identifiable by a die scratch through the denticles above Liberty's forehead. At least two reverse dies are known, one of which was also used to strike the 1854 PR64 NGC specimen in this collection. The present example was struck from a different reverse die whose diagnostic features are vertical striations in the recessed areas between the reverse shield stripes.
Ex: October 2001 Pre-Long Beach Sale (Superior, 10/00), lot 4397, where it realized $14,375. (NGC ID# 2529, PCGS# 6998)
