1858 Liberty Seated Dollar. PCGS graded Proof 64 PQ. Deeply reflective and watery fields have sparkling luster and soft champagne toning. Liberty is a blend of rich mint frost and subtle golden hues. Other than a small scratch under star 5, there are really no marks to mention on either obverse or reverse except for some light hairlines in the fields. For identification, we note a small lint mark right of star 3 and tiny planchet depression left of Liberty's nose. On the reverse, the diagnostic die line is above the ITE of UNITED. Additionally, two planchet flaws exist above the ED of UNITED. A small "S" lintmark is present under the last S of STATES and O of OF and several small planchet depressions near the IC of AMERICA. A totally original and choice example of this proof-only date, the only such issue in the Liberty Seated dollar series. A mintage of 300 proofs is recorded and only 2 gem examples are currently graded by PCGS, both PR-65. This pristine near-gem proof is most likely one of the finest examples known to exist! Housed in an old PCGS green label holder. PCGS population of 8 in PR64 with only 2 PR65's finer (PCGS # 7001) .
Estimated Value $12,000 - 15,000.
The Michael M. Magdic Collection.

Realized $35,650
