Description:
Gem Proof 1869 Seated Liberty Dollar
1869 $1 PR65 PCGS. Just 600 Proofs of this date were minted, and current research points out that these were struck from three different combinations of obverse and reverse dies. The date has the appearance of slanting slightly up to the right in the field below Liberty. On the reverse, the ribbon shows minor incomplete areas, resulting from die polishing. As it seems that this reverse die was first used in 1869, it is likely that the die polishing occurred before the first Proofs were struck from it.
This is a deeply and attractively toned Gem quality Proof with exceptional aesthetic appeal. Both sides have heather color at the centers, surrounded by lovely blue and iridescent toning. A couple splashes of darker steel color are noted at the upper reverse border. All of the design elements are boldly rendered, and there is are no apparent design anomalies. A small area of unfinished die work is located beneath Liberty's chin, and evidence of additional unfinished die work appears within the vertical stripes of the shield on the reverse.
