Description:
Very Rare 1855 Seated Dollar, PR64
1855 $1 PR64 NGC. Rarely seen in either business strike or proof format, the proofs of this date are very rare with estimates of survivors ranging from 30-40 pieces (equivalent of the number of proof sets sold that year) to as many as 75 examples (speculation based upon the number of proof sets sold plus an unknown number of coins sold individually by the Mint). If indeed pieces were sold individually outside sets attrition has taken a fearsome toll on the original mintage as only 33 pieces have been certified by both of the major services minus, of course, an unknown number of resubmissions. This is a flashy, deeply reflective example that shows no obvious or distracting contact marks, just a few discreet hairlines beneath the finely speckled gray-olive and golden toning. (#6998) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2529, PCGS# 6998)
