    1850 Seated Dollar, Lightly Toned PR63
    Low Total-Mintage Year

    1850 $1 PR63 NGC. CAC. Open 5. Two proof dies were used to strike the 1850 dollar with an Open 5. This particular obverse die has an open 5 in the date, with the 0 in 1850 double punched. Die file marks are seen below 50 and the obverse die is uncracked (as opposed to the second die pairing, which is cracked). Business strikes were also produced from this die pairing. There is no doubt about the proof status of this piece, however, with its deeply mirrored fields. Each side shows scattered golden-rose toning, a bit deeper in hue on the obverse than the reverse. The striking details show pinpoint definition on each side, also a feature common to proofs but certainly not a given on prooflike strikes for circulation. Only 40-60 proofs are believed to have been struck of all three die pairings, and in PR63 three pieces have been certified by NGC with 17 finer (10/11).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2522, PCGS# 6991)
