1862 $1 PR (PCGS# 7005)
Lot Number: 7417
Rich olive-gray obverse toning with somewhat bolder, smoky-gray and steel-gray patina blending nicely over the reverse. In both instances the toning is light enough that more direct angles readily reveal radiant brilliance to the original Mint finish. A full strike detail is easily seen, and what few wispy hairlines are present are insignificant in a Gem quality proof silver dollar of the No Motto Seated type. Conditionally rare for both the issue and the type, and from a mintage of just 550 pieces bearing the 1862 date. Tied for finest certified at PCGS!
