    Exquisite PR65 Deep Cameo
    1868 Seated Dollar

    1868 $1 PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. In the Q. David Bowers reference Silver Dollars & Trade Dollars of the United States, he notes for the 1868 proof issue:

    "600 Proof dollars were struck this year and were distributed with the silver Proof sets. In terms of specimens appearing on the market today, high-grade Proof dollars of the late 1860s and early 1870s are considerably more available than those of earlier decades. Still, in absolute terms they are rare."


    Certainly a Gem specimen with Deep Cameo contrast, such as the present coin, is a great rarity. Light golden overtones show a touch of milkiness at the obverse margins, but the coin's essential contrast is absolute. Intensely frosted devices are exquisitely struck. Population: 1 in 65 Deep Cameo, 1 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 252P, PCGS# 97016)
