Important 1855 Seated Dollar, Proof 64 PCGS1855 $1 PR64 PCGS. The proof 1855 Seated Dollar is another rare issue in a series of noteworthy rarities. It is unlikely that the mint delivered more than 30-40 proof sets this year, as well as an unknown, but presumably limited number of additional proof Silver Dollars. NGC and PCGS have seen just 35 proof Dollars of this date, all of which grade between PR61 and PR65 (7/04). This is a uniformly reflective representative with brightness that is evident at direct angles. The outward appearance is one of medium intensity crimson-rose patina with splashes of deep blue iridescence here and there at the rims. The strike is razor sharp throughout, the number of wispy hairlines is consistent with the grade.
There is only one known obverse die for this issue, and it is identifiable by a die scratch through the denticles above Liberty's forehead. At least two reverse dies are known. The present example was struck from a die whose diagnostic features are vertical striations in the recessed areas between the reverse shield stripes. Certainly an attractive, near-Gem example. (#6998) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2529, PCGS# 6998)
