1869 Liberty Seated Dollar. PCGS graded Proof 66 Deep Cameo PQ. One of the finest examples known for this date in proof! The devices of this beauty are crusty with thick mint frost and surrounded by intensely mirrored fields. On the obverse, a light film rests on the fields but it does not effect the reflectivity or eye appeal of this sharply cameo gem. The quality of the reverse devices match the obverse, that is, ridiculously frosty! Reverse fields do not display any film and have a watery appearance to their extremely mirrored state. A few raised die lumps above Liberty's right breast and a curved lintmark right of the top of the shield will serve as identifiers for this specimen. Of the 600 proofs minted this year, finding a gem this nice is like finding a needle in a haystack. Anyone seeking a finest known Motto Seated Dollar in proof would do wonderfully by acquiring this gem. PCGS population of 2 with 1 in 67 Deep Cameo (PCGS # 7017) .
Estimated Value $20,000 - 25,000.

Realized $35,650
