J- 154 $1 1853 PCGS PR64RB ELIASBERG
We consider this to be a very important pattern, especially since this date is extremely rare in regular silver proof! This pattern is an R-7 with LESS then 12 known struck in copper. We grade the coin a stone PR 65. We think PCGS is holding it back due a teenie planchet chip hidden in the right field. The mirrors are surprisingly deep. They also have great clarity, depth, cleanliness, and of course strong reflectivity. The colors are totally original. There are some splashes of blue/pale gold that mix with the even chocolate. Miss Liberty and the details are boldly struck and do stand out. The eye appeal is great! PCGS 1, NGC 0, CAC 1. Hard to believe PCGS has graded 2 in PR 65 (we strongly believe its only one). This coin we are offering here has been off the market since 1998-when the Eliasberg Collection was sold. The last public record of one of these trading in auction was when the 64 sold back in 2003! That coin brought $27,600.00. Opportunity knocks so loud here!
