Description

1870 Gold Dollar, PR65 Cameo
Only One Coin Certified Finer at NGC

1870 G$1 PR65 Cameo NGC. Only 35 proof gold dollars were minted in 1870, and some of them were probably not sold. While most advanced collectors of the era ordered proof sets to fill their runs of current coins, it is known that some prominent numismatists chose to acquire Mint State specimens instead in 1870. The actual number of proof 1870 gold dollars released from the mint is not known, but experts believe no more than 12-15 specimens are extant today in all grades.
The present coin is a sharply detailed Gem, with frosty devices and deeply mirrored fields. The surfaces are a light greenish-gold color and the field-device contrast is exceptional. Currently, NGC has certified only this coin in PR65 Cameo, with a single example finer (10/10).(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 25ED, PCGS# 7620)
