1861. PCGS graded Proof 66. Magnificent rainbow toning on both sides. A total of 1,000 Proofs weere struck. Originality is assured of both sides of this remarkable specimen, toning that yields to no competitors when it comes to serene beauty in a Seated Liberty Dollar. Traces of full mint reflectivity are also evident at all direct angles. Devices keenly struck in all areas, as well, and uncommonly so, with a pristine look for a Proof Silver Dollar of the elusive No Motto type.

The 1861 is an incalculably popular Proof issue due to the rarity of its currency strike counterpart. When offered, the 1861 is often no higher than Proof-64. Gems are elusive, while Gems with Distinction, as found here, are all but unobtainable at the two major grading services. Pop 3; 1 finer in 67 (PCGS # 7004) .
Estimated Value $18,000 - 20,000.

Realized $18,688
