    1864 Seated Dollar, PR65
    Richly Toned and Fully Struck

    1864 $1 PR65 NGC. The combined populations of NGC and PCGS show that, possible duplications notwithstanding, the number of Gem survivors of the 1864 proof Seated dollar is perhaps only one-third that of those at the near-Gem level, and the prices correspond in inverse proportion. This Gem proof is one of 14 such submissions at NGC, versus 50 in PR64, and there are 13 grading events finer, also including likely duplicates (2/13).

    But far beyond any mere consideration of numerical grade, this is a coin that possesses immense eye appeal. The Seated figure of Liberty shows prevailing golden hues that deepen in the obverse field to sunset-orange with an accent of sky-blue, and the reverse shows even deeper amber and copper shades, all complementing the rich mint luster that emanates from beneath the toning. The strike is full throughout both sides, and the only mentionable contact marks are a couple of small scrapes above the eagle's head, in concert with the grade. An extremely nice example of this Civil War proof mintage of 470 coins.
    From The William Jacob Collection, Part II.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 252J, PCGS# 7007)
