Description

Pittman's PR66 Cameo 1881 Gold Dollar

1881 G$1 PR66 Cameo NGC. Out of 87 proofs struck, a number are unknown today, and many more prooflike pieces are masquerading as true proofs. This Premium Gem, on the other hand, is a coin that leaves little doubt as to its status. Intense contrast between faintly textured lemon-yellow mirrors and frosted, sharp devices grants this coin its captivating cameo effect. Impressively preserved with just a few tiny faults visible under close scrutiny, and the sole finest Cameo example known to NGC (2/11).
Ex: Pittman I (Akers, 10/1997), lot 919, where it was uncertified and described as a "Very Choice Proof."(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25ES, PCGS# 87631)
