Description

Reflective PR64 1855 Seated Dollar

1855 $1 PR64 NGC. High-grade proof examples of the 1855 Seated dollar seldom appear at auction due to the limited mintage, unrecorded like so many pre-1858 proof issues from the Philadelphia Mint. Even the business strikes in high grade are elusive, as most of the 26,000 coins struck were apparently exported to the Orient and melted. This near-Gem proof is in any case near the top end of the surviving population, showing deeply reflective fields with the obverse more heavily toned than the reverse. Both sides show light reddish patina that deepens toward the rims, and the strike is full throughout. Pedigree identifiers include three short marks in the right obverse field out from the knee, along with a shallow scrape in the reverse field below TA. Census: 7 in 64, 4 finer (9/12).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2529, PCGS# 6998)
