Finest Certified 1860 Gold Dollar PR66 Cameo

1860 G$1 PR66 Cameo NGC. According to Mint records, 154 proof gold dollars were produced at Philadelphia in 1860, although it is believed that fewer than 50 pieces have survived into the 21st century. This specimen is certainly among the finest of those extant. The mirrored fields are colored an even orange-gold, but surrounding the frosted head of Liberty is a thin line of light yellow-gold, highlighting the cameo effect. There is one small area of brilliance just below the ear of the frosted head, giving the appearance of a sparkling gem earring. The reverse is equally attractive from the standpoint of color, but there is some light porosity at the O in DOLLAR, and a minute lintmark above the A. These minor imperfections are only mentioned for future identification purposes. Rest assured that this will be a very popular item in the sale. Census: 1 in 66, 0 finer (11/06).(Registry values: P4) (PCGS# 87610)
