1864 Seated Dollar, PR66
1864 $1 PR66 NGC. Rich orange-gold hues spread across the
central regions of this beautiful Premium Gem proof, with vivid
royal-blue and violet hues surrounding the margins. The devices are
razor-sharp and deliver subtle cameo contrast with the deeply
reflective fields. A high-end proof in every respect.
Scarce Issue, Exceptional Eye Appeal
Population Data (5/14): This is one of just eight non-Cameo Premium Gems at NGC with five finer. PCGS has seen three PR66 and one finer. Only two Premium Gems have received Cameo designations from NGC and PCGS combined, with none finer.
Heritage Commentary: The proof 1864 Seated dollar had a low mintage of just 470 pieces, yet three different obverse dies were employed for production. Demand for this issue from date collectors is heightened by the rarity of its business strike counterpart, which had a scant mintage of only 30,700 coins and boasts a proportionately low survival rate. Still, the proof variant is somewhat scarcer than later issues of this type, and high-grade pieces are seldom offered.
