Description

1860 Seated Liberty Dollar, MS64+
Better Date, Ex: Geiss

1860 $1 MS64+ NGC. This coin was cataloged as a proof when it appeared as lot 357 of the Geiss Collection (B. Max Mehl, 2/1947), and it certainly has many attributes of the proof format. The design elements exhibit razor-sharp definition throughout, and the surfaces are deeply reflective. Both sides are deeply toned in vivid shades of violet, pale green, and ice-blue, creating fantastic eye appeal. We concur with NGC about the actual status of this coin as a business strike, but it is easy to understand how Mehl was fooled. The 1860 Seated Liberty dollars are scarce-to-rare in all grades, as they were heavily exported, and few examples were saved by collectors. This lot includes the original flip from the Geiss sale. Census: 15 in 64, 6 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24Z2, PCGS# 6949)
