Impressive Select Ultra Cameo 1862 Proof Gold Dollar

1862 G$1 PR63 Ultra Cameo NGC. The obverse of the Type Three gold dollar shows only Liberty's head and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, with no indication of a year. The Philadelphia Mint, in what may have been a move to economy, used a single, heavily polished obverse die to strike more than a decade's worth of proofs; this die is best identified by weakness at the foremost feathers of the headdress.
This lemon-gold Select specimen boasts obvious contrast. The strike is crisp, and despite scattered hairlines and contact in the fields, the overall eye appeal is surprisingly strong. With an uncommonly bold cameo effect on each side, this is a desirable survivor from an issue of only 35 pieces. Census: 1 in 63 Ultra Cameo, 5 finer (2/08).(Registry values: P5) (PCGS# 97612)
