1872 Liberty Seated Dollar. PCGS graded Proof 64 Deep Cameo. Mostly untoned with a hint of lilac coloration near the edges. By adding the motto IN GOD WE TRUST on all silver and gold coinage, the Act of March 3, 1865 ushered in a new, if short-lived type for the seated dollar series (1866-73). An always popular issue among collectors because of the size of the coin Proofs are often selected for a high grade sets. Few, however, will have the opportunity to own such an awe-inspiring deep cameo example as this.

The barest trace of toning evident on either side, this feature allowing full appreciation of the remaining brilliant field-to-device contrast. While the former areas are deeply mirrored, the devices are smooth frosted in white finish. The strike is full on both side, and there is not a single handling mark that would call into question the validity of the grade designation. Worthy of a quality bid. Pop 4; 2 finer, 1 in 65, 1 in 66. Only 950 pieces struck (PCGS # 97020) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,400.

Realized $8,338
