    1859 Premium Gem Proof Seated Dollar
    A Splendid No Motto Type Coin

    1859 $1 PR66 NGC. Ex: Simpson. Even though 800 proofs were officially struck in 1859, an unrecorded (but apparently substantial) number were melted as unsold at year's end. This is one of the finest examples that remain from this low total-mintage year, and as a No Motto dollar it assumes even greater importance as a type coin. The surfaces appear perfect to the unaided eye, and the devices show thick mint frost that is apparent even beneath the considerable toning on each side. The rich red obverse center is surrounded by blue peripheral color. The reverse has the same colors but they are in wide, diagonal bands. The devices are fully struck throughout. The only mentionable surface "defect" is a small planchet flake above and to the right of the upper arrow on the reverse.
    From The Bob Simpson Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 252D, PCGS# 7002)
