Premium Gem Proof 1860 Gold Dollar
Among the Top Three PCGS Coins

1860 G$1 PR66 PCGS. CAC. Two PR66 Cameo coins and this undesignated PR66 piece are the only better-than-Gem specimens of the proof 1860 gold dollar issue certified by PCGS (11/11). While not labeled Cameo, this coin possesses considerable contrast, though the obverse cameo effect is weaker than that of the reverse, hurting its chances for a designation on re-grading. Deep yellow mirrors surround sharply struck devices rendered in "gold-frost." While the plastic holder shows a number of scuffs and marks, these should not be interpreted as damage to the coin itself, which has technical appeal as impressive as the grade suggests. Proof 1860 gold dollars are far more elusive than their official mintage of 154 pieces might suggest; PCGS suggests there are "25 to 35 known."
Seller is donating a portion of their proceeds, and Heritage is donating the same portion of the Buyer's Premium, from the sale of this lot to the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution. See page 3 for details.(Registry values: P4) (PCGS# 7610)
