Lot Description
1855 $1 MS61 Prooflike NGC. Boldly struck and untoned with highly reflective fields that show a few faint, grade-limiting hairlines. Contact marks are minimal, and three or four tiny brown spots are noted on the obverse. This is a scarce low-mintage issue that is rare in Mint State, especially with Prooflike fields. Observation of many high grade Seated dollars from the 1840s and 1850s has shown that a high percentage of most dates show at least semiprooflike fields. However, with fully reflective fields, as seen on this piece, this is the only Prooflike example so-designated by NGC, at any grade level, as of (4/08).
