Description

Exceedingly Rare 1875 Gold Dollar, Proof 66 Ultra cameo NGC

1875 G$1 PR66 Deep Cameo NGC. The Philadelphia mint produced only twenty 1875 Gold Dollars in proof format. No more than half this original mintage is believed extant, including those coins that are impounded in the Smithsonian and ANS collections. Clearly, the present PR66 Cameo specimen is one of, if not the finest example available to private collectors.
The otherwise yellow-gold surfaces exhibit subtle apricot accents particularly on the obverse. There is strong cameo contrast on both sides, the devices being sharply struck and thickly frosted, while the fields reveal near-bottomless reflectivity. There are only a few microscopic hairlines in the fields. To help identify this coin for pedigree purposes, two tiny indentions are seen on Liberty's cheek to the left of her ear lobe. Simply put, this is a smooth, no-questions Gem.(#97625) (Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 25EJ, PCGS# 97625)
