Description:
1872 Gold Dollar PR65 Deep Cameo, Finest Graded at PCGS
1872 G$1 PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. The 1872 proof gold dollar is a major rarity, but it has not always been recognized as such. Only 30 proofs were struck, with an estimated 14-16 pieces believed extant today. Current population figures from the two major grading services indicate that this may be an accurate assessment, as they have certified a combined total of 15 coins (including any possible resubmissions).
There is no question as to the proof status of this coin, as the details of the head and wreath are razor-sharp and the fields display an extremely deep mirror finish. A richly frosted appearance on the devices yields a strong cameo effect. Even with magnification, any noteworthy post-striking problems or spotting are undetected. To date (6/06), this is the single finest-graded proof 1872 gold dollar, at PCGS, and, as such, represents a rare opportunity for the advanced gold specialist. Population: 1 in 65 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (7/06).
From The Mulholland Collection.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25EF, PCGS# 97622)
