Owner Comments:

Although the proof 1859 has a respectable original mintage of 800 pieces, survivors are much rarer in numismatic circles than that total might imply. Many examples undoubtedly remained unsold by year's end and were subsequently melted in the Mint. The present specimen not only survived, but it did so without acquiring any blemishes that would preclude a full Gem grade. The surfaces are uniformly reflective in finish beneath an overlay of deep midnight-blue and, in the centers, softer apricot and tannish-gray shades. Fully struck.
