Colorful Gem Proof 1860 Seated Dollar1860 $1 PR65 NGC. CAC. In Silver Dollars and Trade Dollars of the United States, Q. David Bowers writes that the 1,330 proof production of the 1860 dollar was abnormally large, and "... the highest proof figure in the entire Liberty Seated series, all delivered on March 8. Only 527 were eventually sold, and the rest were consigned to the melting pot." Lavender-magenta toning enriches this Gem proof from the heavily melted issue, and additional blue and violet elements grace the margins. The design elements are sharply impressed save for softness in the centers of the fourth, fifth, and sixth stars. Well-preserved with just a few minor marks on Liberty's cheek and right (left facing) arm and light stuttering contact in the left reverse field. Census: 16 in 65, 49 finer (8/11).
