Gorgeous 1851 'Original' Dollar, MS63
1851 $1 MS63 NGC. High Date. A mere 1,300 dollars were produced for circulation in 1851, with another 30 to 100 restrike proofs made at a later date. The "Original" business strikes, such as this particular example, have the date high, while the restrikes show it centered. It is generally believed that no Original proof 1851 dollars were made, and indeed none have been certified by either NGC or PCGS. Although Original dollars have been cataloged as proofs in the past, these are now believed to be prooflike business strikes.
The rarity of 1851 Original dollars is undisputable. A total of 44 specimens have been certified, a number of which are likely resubmitted or crossover coins. The majority of the population is in the circulated to MS62 range. Ten examples rate MS63, seven near-Gem, and a paltry two Gems are known, with none finer.
Gorgeous toning resides on both sides of this Select specimen. Low-intensity sky-blue dominates the obverse, save for splashes of yellow-gold and lavender on the Liberty motif and in the right fields, while higher-intensity bluish-purple covers the reverse. An attentive strike brings about virtual completeness on the design elements, including the detail on Liberty's foot and the eagle's plumage. Close inspection reveals no marks worthy of individual mention, though a couple of small contacts on Liberty's upper right (left facing) shoulder are mentioned solely for pedigree purposes. In sum, a pleasing representative of this rare issue that will delight the aficionado of Seated Liberty dollars. Census: 9 in 63, 3 finer (2/08).
