Description

Nicely Toned, Near-Gem Proof 1861 Seated Dollar

1861 $1 PR64 NGC. The listed proof mintage of this Civil War era date is 1,000 pieces, but at least 600 of those went unsold and were later melted. That, combined with the scarcity of better grade 1861 business strikes, puts strong date pressure on the few hundred surviving proof specimens, many of which have been spent, harshly cleaned, or otherwise impaired. This piece is deeply reflective and the devices have a moderate amount of frost which results in a pleasing, if mild field-to-device contrast. A few light hairlines account for the grade, these apparently the result of a wiping from many years (perhaps generations) ago. The magenta-golden toning is accented with a bit of peripheral blue color. Population: 19 in 64, 9 finer (11/03). (#7004) (Registry values: N4625) (NGC ID# 252F, PCGS# 7004)
