Description

Captivating 1864 Seated Liberty Dollar PR65

1864 $1 PR65 PCGS. The first of two extraordinary proof 1864 Seated Dollars in this memorable sale. This heavily frosted specimen is intricately detailed, with glittering mirrored surfaces that are free of all but a few wispy, inconspicuous blemishes. Tinges of pale golden color gravitate to the margins.
In his 1993 Silver Dollar reference, Bowers gives a detailed description of the dies that the Mint used to produce proofs from this year. The obverse shield point is over the tip of the 1 in the date, and on the reverse, the olive leaves are joined by rough, unfinished areas. The lowermost arrowheads are also joined by a defect. Apparently, this is the same reverse die used to strike the proof 1863 just offered, but the die line from the middle of the eagle's left (facing) wingtip is no longer evident.
All the technical stuff aside, the sheer beauty of this dazzling Seated Liberty proof is captivating enough for most collectors. Population: 13 in 65, 1 finer (4/03). (NGC ID# 252J, PCGS# 7007)
