1865 Pattern J-434 Silver $1 PCGS PR65 (CAC)


An amazing rarity! This is an R-7 struck in silver. We recently purchased it from our Glorious Pattern Collection.

A sensational and HIGH END GEM example of this “transitional” Seated Liberty silver dollar. Struck from regular 1865 obverse and the with Motto reverse ca. 1866 and later. Considered to be Rarity-7+ with just 4-6 examples known. We cannot over describe this coin’s SUPER HIGH-END quality!

The mirrors are super deep and have bold clarity. There are NO disturbances anywhere. The reflectivity is powerful; when you twirl the coin there is a strong “watery” roll of the mirrors. Both sides are blanketed by a moderate, original swirling mix of totally original deep champagne/pale purple/silver colors. Miss Liberty and the details are sharply struck and do have thick creamy frost. The eye appeal is awesome!

PCGS 1, NGC 0, CAC 1. There is a PR66 in the Simpson Collection. A PR65 (possibly the Simpson 66 now) sold via auction for $51,750.00 05/2003. This coin brought $45,825.00 in our Regency 51 sale. Somehow, there is a current Collectors Universe value of $40,000. The Judd book values a PR65 at $60,000. The last PCGS PR65 sold in May 2003, ex Bass Collection, at $51,750–that was nearly twenty years ago! Chances are you’re never going to get another chance at a killer SUPER HIGH-END GEM like this. The coin was purchased from us back in 2015, and is ex Gardner.
