    1868 Seated Dollar, PR66 Cameo
    Magnificently Preserved and Toned

    1868 $1 PR66 Cameo NGC. The number of business strike dollars more than tripled from 1867 to 1868, but the number of proofs actually declined. With only 600 proofs issued, the 1868 is elusive in any grade. It is rare to see a proof Seated Liberty dollar with a Cameo designation, a fact supported by the population figures from NGC and PCGS. Between these two services 466 proof 1868 dollars have been graded, a number that undoubtedly includes many resubmissions. Of these just 67 are Cameos with another 13 awarded a Deep or Ultra Cameo designation -- barely 17% of the total population. Even without the Cameo finish, few 1868 dollars exist at the PR66 level. This magnificent proof striking is bright and flashy. Each side has a near-brilliant centers that is surrounded by golden-rose at the margins, then deep blue.
