    Desirable Proof-Only 1858 Seated Dollar

    1858 $1 PR61 PCGS. Among the most famous and widely recognized dates in the 1840-1873 Seated Dollar series, the 1858 was produced solely in proof format. Since mint records are silent on the number of coins produced, we may never know the original mintage of this date. Nevertheless, an estimate of 300+ pieces seems to be fashionable in most numismatic circles. This particular survivor was struck from the same reverse die that the Mint used to deliver some 1856 and 1857 proofs, and it is most readily identifiable by the presence of a prominent rust lump over the left base of the L in DOL. The otherwise brilliant surfaces reveal blushes of pale copper-tan iridescence at peripheral areas on each side. Sparkling mint brilliance is readily evident as the surfaces rotate beneath the light. Both numerous hairlines and a prominent vertical scratch between the left (facing) wing and the AT of STATES seem to explain the PR61 designation.(#7001) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 252C, PCGS# 7001)

    Needless to say I was overwhelmed by the results of the auction and I truly believe it was Jill’s efforts in promoting and displaying the piece that brought in the extra value.
