Description:
1860 PR66 Cameo Gold Dollar
Seldom Seen Date as a Proof
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. One small area of brilliance (actually die polishing) occurs just below the ear of the frosted head, giving the appearance of a sparkling gem earring. The reverse is equally attractive from a color standpoint, but light porosity shows at the O in DOLLAR, and a minute, curved lintmark above the A. These minor imperfections are only mentioned for future identification purposes. Sure to be a popular item in the sale. Census: 2 in 66 Cameo, 0 finer (11/12).
