1863 Dollar, PR64+ Cameo
1863 $1 PR64+ Cameo PCGS. OC-P2, Low R.4. Ex: Simpson. Two
proof dies are known. This one shows the third vertical shield line
extending up into the horizontals. Of the 460 Seated dollar proofs
struck in 1863, it is believed that about 170 OC-P2 dollars
survive, plus 130 or so OC-P1 coins for a rough total of about 300
proofs. Each side enjoys attractive Cameo contrast. The obverse
exhibits rainbow target toning that progresses from green and blue
around the rims to violet, magenta, and gold at the center. The
reverse is mostly golden-orange with a bit of added color at 8
o'clock. Population: 17 in 64 (1 in 64+) Cameo, 5 finer (4/20).
