Description

Gem Proof 1868 Seated Dollar
Deeply Mirrored Obverse

1868 $1 PR65 NGC. The 1868 Seated dollar proofs, coming as they do later in the series, had a recorded mintage of 600 pieces, far more than some earlier strikings, and type collectors naturally gravitate toward these later issues. (Despite the mintage of 162,100 circulation strikes, many were later melted in the Orient, and they are elusive today.) This piece boasts amazingly deep mirrors on the obverse and less so on reverse, which is a bit deeper in color. The obverse shows bright golden-rose patina while the reverse is more muted, gray-blue and gold. A few light field hairlines appear under a loupe but detract little from the strong eye appeal. Census: 24 in 65, 47 finer (9/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 252P, PCGS# 7016)
