Flashy 1858 Dollar, PR63 NGC1858 $1 PR63 NGC. The 1858 Seated dollar is one of the most respected and highly sought-after silver coins in U.S. numismatics. While it is known that no business strikes were produced of this date, it is far from clear just how many proofs were struck. The Mint did not start keeping proof mintage records until the following year. Estimates have ranged from as low as 80 coins (per S. Hudson and Henry Chapman) to as high as 600 coins extant (per the Gobrecht Journal, July 1982). All we can do with certainty is quote combined NGC and PCGS population data, which lists about 145 coins in all grades (10/05). Naturally, some of these are likely resubmissions of the same specimens. This particular piece has flashy, deeply reflective fields with just a hint of light golden color on each side. Lightly hairlined on both sides, but there are no mentionable abrasions. The design elements are exquisitely struck. All in all, a very pleasing representative. Census: 17 in 63, 18 finer (10/05).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 252C, PCGS# 7001)
