          This dollar is a stunning example of the best that classic Proof coinage has to offer! For any fan of deep, original toning, it just does not get much better than this. This amazing dollar is a deep cobalt blue with some hint of red included. The only detraction whatsoever is a nick in front of Liberty's knee where another dollar contacted this coin leaving three tiny reed marks. Otherwise the surfaces are virtually flawless and hairline free. That tiny nick is actually a blessing in disguise, as this dollar would otherwise be priced well above many new cars. Original mintage was 800 coins, and these could be purchased at the mint at that time for all of $1.08!

Priced at $6500.00
