|Here is an amazing 1862 Proof Seated Liberty Dollar which has been graded PR64CAM by PCGS. Only 550 proof Seated Dollars were struck in 1862, so all of them can be considered relatively rare. The coin here is one of the finest known surviving specimens of that low original mintage. Although PR64CAM may not seem like an ultra high grade to collectors of modern proof coinage, only three (3) examples of this date have graded higher at PCGS; one coin grading PR65CAM and a pair of coins that have graded PR64DCAM. Most importantly, the coin has wonderful eye appeal. The coin has very strong cameo frost on both sides and shows the details of this classic design extremely well. The mirrored fields are also strong on both sides, but are also lightly hairlined, which is most likely the reason this piece did not grade even higher. That said, the hairlines are not overly distracting and overall eye appeal, strong details and lack of any other issues make this coin a very special piece. An incredible example of the type with a low-mintage Civil War date as well.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
