    1865 Seated Dollar, PR67★ Cameo
    The Finest Cameo Certified
    Beautifully Toned and Original

    1865 $1 PR67★ Cameo NGC. OC-P2, R.3. Ex: Simpson. Osburn-Cushing Die State a/a, as always for this proof die pairing. Although only 500 proof Seated dollars were struck in 1865, this issue is one of the most plentiful No Motto proofs from the 1860s. Dick Osburn and Brian Cushing estimate that about 375 examples survive, although the majority of those pieces grade no finer than PR64. High-grade examples of the 1865 proof are highly sought-after, especially in light of the fact that this is the last collectible proof issue of the No Motto type.

    In Superb Gem condition, the 1865 proof is a major rarity. PCGS has seen only one coin in PR67, a non-Cameo; that service lists no Cameos finer than PR65 and no Deep Cameos finer than PR66. NGC reports seven Superb Gem examples of this issue, including five non-Cameo pieces and two Cameos. Of the two PR67 Cameos at that service, this piece is the only one with a Star designation, making it essentially the finest-known Cameo example of the 1865 proof Seated dollar. The coin is fully struck and beautifully preserved, showing stark contrast with light golden toning throughout the interiors. The borders display vivid blue and violet patina, and eye appeal is outstanding. Census: 2 in 67 Cameo (1 in 67 ), 0 finer (9/20).(Registry values: N10218)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 252K, PCGS# 87008)
