Description

1857 Seated Dollar--Improperly Cleaned--NGC. Proof. Although proof mintages were not recorded before 1858, Q. David Bowers estimates an original mintage of 50-100 pieces for the proof 1857 Seated dollar. The issue is definitely scarce to rare in all grades. The present coin shows the fanciful "beard" on Liberty's chin, characteristic of the first obverse die (out of two) used to strike proofs of this date. The present coin is sharply struck, with areas of intermingled blue, green, and gray toning.
From The Boca Collection, Part II.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 252B, PCGS# 7000)
