Superb Proof Ultra Cameo
Attractive yellow-gold patina drapes the surfaces of this carefully preserved specimen. The devices have a splendid frost, which shows outstanding cameo contrast against the deeply mirrored fields. Close inspection with a loupe reveals only a couple of nearly imperceptible handling marks. This dazzling piece has tremendous eye appeal and would suit even the most discerning eye.
Each of the two types had a total distribution of 17,500 pieces and were offered for sale to collectors or attendees of the exposition. The first 100 pieces of each variety were proofs and, rather than being sold, they were given to important individuals and officials. PCGS has certified only 33 proof Jefferson specimens, of which just two have been certified as Cameo. NGC reports a total of 25 proof Jefferson dollars in all grades, and only five have received the coveted Ultra Cameo designation. A mere two examples have been certified in PR67 Ultra Cameo, and neither grading service reports any finer (8/08). (PCGS# 97482)
