Attractive 1856 Dollar, PR631856 $1 PR63 PCGS. Most 1856 proof dollars were probably issued as part of silver proof sets, which in that year were starting to have a wide following among numismatists. The approximately 40 examples thought by Breen to exist are more or less in line with the 60 or so seen by PCGS and NGC, after discounting resubmissions and crossovers.
Both sides of this Select example display soft golden-tan color accented with whispers of electric-blue and lavender at the margins. A well executed strike delivers sharp definition to the design elements, with no areas revealing even hints of weakness. A few faint hairlines limit the grade. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 8 in 63, 11 finer (12/09).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 252A, PCGS# 6999)
