Cameo Gem Proof 1861 Silver Dollar1861 $1 PR65 Cameo NGC. This intricately struck Gem features beautiful electric-blue and ruby-red toning throughout the margins. The fields have chestnut toning that deepens slightly near the borders. Gorgeously smooth, and the eye appeal is irrefutably gorgeous. Although the Guide Book reports a mintage of 1,000 proofs, perhaps the majority of those pieces were eventually melted by the Mint as unsold. Judging by NGC and PCGS population data, the proof 1861 is rarer than any of the 1862 to 1873 dates, some of which have mintages as lot as 460 pieces. Census: 1 in 65 Cameo, 1 finer (2/08).
From The Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars. (PCGS# 87004)
