Rare Gem Proof 1858 Gold Dollar

1858 PR 65 PCGS. A significant proof striking as 1858 was the first year proof coins were available to the collecting public at large. As such, it marks the beginning of the modern era of proof coinage in this country. An unknown, but small, number of proof gold dollars were produced in this year with reliable estimates of only 10-12 pieces believed extant today. This is a deeply reflective specimen that shows generous portions of mint frost on the devices, producing an attractive two-toned cameo effect. A light milky haze has developed over the years, a sign of complete originality. Population: 3 in PR 65, none are finer (5/97). (NGC ID# AWUU, PCGS# 7608)
