Item Description:
Wow! This coin is truly the prize of the Southern Seated Dollar Collection. It is far and away the finest known example with the next finest Proof 65 (non-cameo). Overall the coin has a medium rose patina over immaculate proof surfaces and an unparalleled strike. With renewed interested in early proof coinage, we expect this piece to see spirited bidding for those seeking the finest. A Proof 64 specimen recently realized $103,500 (Heritage, 4/08) so we expect this coin could set a record.
