Description

Gem Proof 1864 Seated Dollar
From the Pittman Collection

1864 $1 PR65 NGC. Ex: Pittman. Although the older NGC holder precludes a Cameo designation, the present Gem has the frosted motifs and glassy fields worthy of such a notation. At first glance the coin appears brilliant, but both sides have faint and consistent gold toning, and the rims display occasional glimpses of deeper russet. A beautiful No Motto specimen worthy of a high grade proof type collection. A mere 470 proofs were struck for this Civil War date, and only a portion of that mintage has survived unimpaired. Census: 14 in 65, 14 finer (7/08).
Ex: John Jay Pittman Collection, Part Two (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 1694. Earlier purchased by Pittman from French's of Troy, New York, on 2/1962, for $100. (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 252J, PCGS# 7007)
