    1855 Seated Dollar, PR63
    Uncertain Mintage, Possibly 40 Survive

    1855 $1 PR63 PCGS. As for most pre-1858 proof issues, the 2014 Guide Book does not even attempt a mintage estimate, but Bowers guesses that between 40 and 75 proof 1855 Seated dollars were coined. Breen's Proof Encyclopedia only commits to the laconic "possibly 50-60 survive." Both of those estimates may be high, as even with possible duplication the combined NGC/PCGS population surveys show only 38 coins, including a few Cameo pieces. Issues are known both with a leftover reverse die from 1854, including the present coin, and a new die from 1855. There are a few scattered contact marks that account for the grade, but much eye appeal is present on the pinkish-gold, well-struck surfaces. Population: 3 in 63, 9 finer (6/13).
