Description:
Prooflike Mint State 1859 Seated Dollar
1859 $1 MS62 PCGS. At first glance, this lovely example looks like a proof with its fully mirrored fields. Careful examination reveals its true status, that of a prooflike business strike. The depth of the mirrored surface and the strength of the strike are two factors to consider when making this determination. While fully prooflike, the fields are not deeply mirrored as on a true proof, and the strike is weak, especially at the top and right side of the obverse. The surfaces are fully brilliant white with minor hairlines visible in the fields. Overall, this is an attractive example, and seldom seen with a prooflike finish.(#6946) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24YX, PCGS# 6946)
