    Select Proof 1852 Seated Dollar
    A Fully Struck Example

    1852 $1 Restrike PR63 PCGS. CAC. Walter Breen, along with other researchers, has spent much time studying proof 1852 Seated dollars. Breen concluded that 90% of all proofs are restrikes, although his evidence for the statement is unclear. The 1993 Bowers Silver Dollar Encyclopedia lists six different varieties of proofs. The present specimen, due to the extent of polished areas within the vertical shield lines, appears to be Bowers proof variety 6, which he states is a restrike variety. Perhaps wisely, PCGS has simply certified all of the 1852 proofs in its holders as restrikes (PCGS #6995). NGC has certified only three proofs as originals, which makes that issue essentially noncollectible. The present restrike displays lightly dappled cream-gray and chestnut toning, with a full strike and contact-free surfaces. Hairlines are also elusive, although slightly subdued field reflectivity corresponds to the grade. Cameo contrast is evident but moderate. Housed in an old green label holder. Population: 4 in 63, 4 finer (6/10).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2525, PCGS# 6995)

    Weight: 26.73 grams
