Description:
1859 Seated Liberty Dollar, PR63
Vivid Patina
1859 $1 PR63 PCGS. The Philadelphia Mint first offered proof sets on a commercial basis in 1858, and the program was a surprising success. The Mint responded with an optimistic proof mintage of 800 Seated Liberty silver dollars in 1859, but it is unlikely all those pieces were sold. Much of the mintage was probably melted after the year's end. Based on current availability, Q. David Bowers estimates about 450 specimens were actually distributed, and Select examples are very scarce today. The present coin is sharply detailed, with a few grade-consistent hairlines in the brightly reflective fields. The surfaces are patinated in vivid shades of gold and violet. Population: 33 in 63, 54 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 252D, PCGS# 7002)
