    Extremely Rare Proof 1845 Seated Dollar

    1845 $1 PR64 NGC. Only 15-25 proof Seated Dollars from this year are estimated to have been originally produced, and of that number a liberal estimate of the number of survivors is around ten pieces. This specimen shows the diagnostic repunching on the middle two digits (in particular the 8) in the date, and the reverse is struck from the same die that the Philadelphia Mint used to produce most, if not all of the 1840-1850 proof Seated Dollars. The striking details are boldly brought up in all areas and watery reflectivity is unabated, with attractive coppery-gold and violet toning that gravitates to the edges. Several clusters of miniscule blemishes in the fields suggest that this flashy specimen may have rattled around in a drawer with other coins in the distant past, but the coin's originality and lack of hairlines compensate for these distractions. Population: 3 in 64, 4 finer (4/02). (NGC ID# 24ZV, PCGS# 6986)
