Description:
Scarce 1857 Seated Dollar, PR64
1857 $1 PR64 PCGS. Pre-1858 proof coinage of any denomination is scarce, but those from 1857 are generally more available than other early pre-mass production years. Mintages prior to 1858 are unknown and largely a matter of conjecture. It is generally believed that somewhere between 50 and 100 proof dollars were struck. Of that number, probably no more than 40-50 are known today in all grades. High grade pieces such as this one are rarely encountered. Only 11 near-Gems have been certified by PCGS, with NGC grading another 13. Above this level, only eight coins have been graded. The fields on this piece are bright and highly reflective. The fully struck surfaces are mostly brilliant with just a smattering of pale golden-brown patina seen on the obverse. Population: 10 in 64, 1 finer (3/09).
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 252B, PCGS# 7000)
