Description:
Trompeter's Prooflike Gem 1873 Closed 3 Gold Dollar
1873 G$1 Closed 3 MS65 PCGS. Ex: Trompeter. A sharply struck lemon-orange Gem with flashy, moderately reflective fields and exceptional eye appeal. Essentially pristine, although an occasional minute planchet flaw (as made) is encountered. Trompeter considered the present piece to be a proof and it was part of his fabulous collection of proof gold coinage. It does match Breen's proof diagnostics, which include an incomplete feather in headdress below the second T in STATES, an open top of the wreath, and a slightly rising date. The date location is seemingly identical to the proof offered in our 2001 FUN Sale as lot 8057. Regardless of its proof or business strike status, this is a very rare Gold Dollar, since only 25 proofs were struck and PCGS has certified a mere four business strikes as MS65 with two finer. Encapsulated in an older green label PCGS holder.
Ex: Ed Trompeter Collection (Superior, 2/92), lot 19, cataloged as a proof; Orlando Sale (Superior, 8/92), lot 541; Superior, 5/94, lot 1438; Long Beach Bullet Sale (Heritage, 9/96), lot 572. (#7574) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25DA, PCGS# 7574)
