Lot Description
1867 $1 MS65 PCGS. Breen-5478, 1867 Over Smaller Date, as on every better grade example we have sold in recent years. A half dollar logotype was first entered and was then corrected with the dollar-sized date. This die pair was first used to produce some of the 100 proof Silver Dollars delivered in June 1867. Later, the dies were put to use producing business strikes, and may comprise the bulk of the 10,300 pieces delivered on November 22 of this year. The remarkable Gem example offered here is mildly prooflike beneath rose-gray patina, with deeper rings of reddish-violet and cobalt-blue a the margins. Only the Sweet/Lee specimen that we sold in November of last year (for nearly $30,000) is of comparable quality. Population: 2 in 65, 0 finer (4/06).
