    1868 With Motto Seated Dollar, PR66 Cameo
    A Conditional Rarity

    1868 $1 PR66 Cameo NGC. Ex: Simpson. Seated Liberty dollars from the 1860s saw extensive circulation, often overseas, so collectors who desire attractive, high-grade examples frequently look to proofs. The 1868, however, is tied for the lowest proof mintage in the With Motto series, with a scant 600 specimens struck. While most proof Seated Liberty dollars show little-to-no cameo contrast, this specimen is one of the exceptions with powerfully mirrored fields and frosted devices. Silver-gray centers are complemented by light champagne toning around the rims. All of the details are fully struck. NGC and PCGS have graded only a handful of specimens above PR65. At the PR66 Cameo level NGC reports a mere three examples, with an equal number finer (6/10).
    From The Bob Simpson Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 252P, PCGS# 87016)
