Stunning 1865 Seated Liberty Dollar
PR65+ Ultra Cameo, Last No Motto Issue

1865 $1 PR65+ Ultra Cameo NGC. The final year of the Civil War was also the last for the No Motto Seated dollar designs, due to the upswell in religious belief that the catastrophic conflict engendered. The 1865-dated Seated dollars are accordingly the last of their kind, although some 1865-dated pattern With Motto silver dollar proofs (Judd-434), transitional issues, are known. The present Gem Ultra Cameo presents unusual and stunning quality for a proof from this challenging era, early in the Mint's status as official marketer-purveyor of proof coins to collectors. The devices are thickly coated with mint frost; profound mirrors characterize the fields. The surfaces are largely ice-white, with a suggestion of russet and blue-gray on the obverse. The strike is full throughout, and minor field contact -- chiefly in the left obverse -- limits an even finer grade. The reverse die is a carryover from 1863. Census: 1 in 65+ Ultra Cameo (this piece), 7 in 66 Ultra Cameo finer (3/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 252K, PCGS# 97008)
