This incredible proof is pedigreed to the John Jay Pittman Collection, where it was part of Pittman’s “Complete 1845 Proof Set in Original Case.” In his discussion of this coin, David Akers wrote:
“This proof silver dollar is essentially perfect and is unquestionably the finest proof dollar of the decade that I have ever seen. It is fully struck with a sharp square edge and deep mirror fields that are immaculate and pristine. The few lines present in the fields are actually planchet lines that were not eliminated by the minting process; they are not hairlines. The toning is as extraordinary and perfect as the technical quality of the surfaces, a superb medium multicolored iridescent blend of reddish-gold, which is the predominant color, and considerate violet and blue. Every star is boldly defined with all of its radial lines, and the head and foot of Liberty are extremely sharp. All of the eagle’s features and talons are also fully struck.”
It’s estimated that there are approximately 15 Proof examples known. This is the only PR67 graded by NGC with none higher and PCGS hasn’t graded any higher than PR65.
