Lot Description
1857 Seated Liberty Silver Dollar. Proof-65 (NGC). <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;">The 1857 Seated Dollar in proof format is very rare at any grading level, but here, as a <i>full Gem,</i> it is particularly so -- a numismatic treasure that will excite any specialist. The surfaces are not only outstanding in quality, with scarcely any marks or hairlines, but exhibit exceptional blue and russet-gray toning that enhances each device. Fully struck throughout, and a proof at a glance in terms of quality and reflectivity. One of perhaps 50 or so proof Silver Dollars coined in 1857, although much finer than most. Today well within the top 20% of those that survive of this rare issue. The toning really comes alive when examined under a light.<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;A sizeable crack in the front of the NGC holder at the&nbsp;lower-right border is noted.<br /><br />
