    1903 Dollar, PR67
    Exceptional Toning

    1903 $1 PR67 NGC. CAC. Beginning in 1902 proofs were intentionally struck with no contrast between the fields and devices. The reason for this is unknown, but there is definitely a profound difference in appearance of proofs struck between 1902 and 1903 and those struck just five years previously. Perhaps David Bowers explains it best in his 1993 Dollar Encyclopedia: "Like the 1902 and 1904, they were struck from dies which had been polished in the deep design recesses, imparting an appearance which makes the coins themselves appear polished." Indeed, the devices as well as the fields on this piece are bright. The only thing that keeps the devices from flashing as the fields do is the lack of a flat, uniform surface. Each side of this coin has a small center of brilliance. Around that bright center are circles of deep rose-golden and sea-green. A magnificent example of this short-lived proofing type. Census: 25 in 67 (1 in 67 ), 6 finer. CAC: 6 in 67, 2 finer (10/19).
