    1859 Seated Liberty Dollar, PR65
    Four Finer Coins at PCGS

    1859 $1 PR65 PCGS. CAC. Mint officials were gratified by the enthusiasm the public showed for the first commercial proof set offerings in 1858 and produced a generous mintage of 800 proof Seated Liberty dollars in 1859. This turned out to be overly optimistic, and many specimens went unsold, to be melted after the end of the year. Experts estimate approximately 450 examples were actually distributed to customers.

    The present coin is an impressive Gem with well-detailed design elements that show just a touch of softness on some of the stars. The well-preserved reflective surfaces display attractive shades of champagne-gold, lavender-gray, and powder-blue toning. Eye appeal is quite strong. Population: 8 in 65, 4 finer (9/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 252D, PCGS# 7002)
