    Description

    1864 Seated Dollar, PR66
    Scarce Issue, Exceptional Eye Appeal

    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.

    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.

    Provenance: Classics Sale (American Numismatic Rarities, 12/2003), lot 826.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 252J, PCGS# 7007)
