Description

PR65+ 1868 Seated Dollar
Attractively Toned

1868 $1 PR65+ PCGS. Proofs of this era typically demonstrate weak strikes -- a stark contrast to the proofs of the early 20th century. Coupled with poor handling by collectors, this has caused Gem proofs to be quite rare today. The high-end Gem in this lot yields an excellent strike and magnificent patination. Cobalt-blue dominates both sides, accented with yellow-gold and whispers of lavender. While not a Cameo, some mild field-motif contrast is evident when the coin is tilted beneath a light source, especially on the reverse. Magnification brings out no mentionable flaws. All in all, this specimen possesses exceptional eye appeal. Population: 1 in 65+, 4 finer (11/11).
Seller is donating a portion of their proceeds, and Heritage is donating the same portion of the Buyer's Premium, from the sale of this lot to the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution. See page 3 for details.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 252P, PCGS# 7016)
