Description

Richly Toned Select Proof
1856 Seated Dollar

1856 $1 PR63 PCGS. Owing to the uncertainty involved with mintages of pre-1858 U.S. proof coinage, scholars cannot settle on an original production figure for the proof Seated dollars of 1856. The rarity of surviving specimens, however, is indubitable. This Select proof is a colorful representative given over to broad gold-to-orange patina. Green and violet overtones are isolated on the obverse but more prominent across stretches of the reverse. Though lightly hairlined with a few contact marks, this glossy Select proof remains an important and readily collectible piece of earlier proof U.S. coinage history.
Ex: Milton A. Holmes (Stack's, 10/1960), lot 2289.
