Rare Gem 1865 Seated Dollar, An Originally Toned Proof From the Kaufman Collection

1865 $1 PR66 NGC. Ex: P. Kaufman. Essentially full striking definition characterizes both sides of this impressively original Gem. Of particular note are the fully separated hair strands on Liberty's head and the crisp feathers on the eagle's left (facing) leg. The slightest bluntness of definition at the top of the eagle's left (facing) wing is noted more for accuracy than for any deleterious effect it may have on the eye appeal. In fact, the appearance of this proof is truly remarkable. Both sides are toned in mottled olive-copper shades with a few bisecting streaks of near-brilliance that are most noticeable near the lower right obverse border. Glistening multicolored undertones, as well as considerable evidence of a cameo finish, are evident as the coin rotates under the light, and they enhance the already spectacular eye appeal. The number of wispy blemishes is typically minimal for the assigned grade, and none are readily evident. In fact, we cannot even find a single worthwhile pedigree marker. The combined business strike and proof delivery of the 1865 Seated Dollar is only 47,000 pieces, and many of the former examples were destroyed or lost after having been exported. This coin is considerably finer than the PR63 PCGS representative that we handled a little more than eight months ago as part of the Morris Silverman Collection of Silver Dollars. Population: 11 in 66, 4 finer (10/02).
From the Philip Kaufman Collection. (NGC ID# 252K, PCGS# 7008)
