Description:
Ex: Bass Collection 1884 Proof Gold Dollar PR66 PCGS
1884 G$1 PR66 PCGS. Ex: Bass Collection. This was the first year of greatly enhanced production of proofs, with 1,006 pieces struck in this format. Apparently many were used in the jewelry trade and attrition has taken a heavy toll on the original mintage. The current example is razor-sharp, and impressively preserved. A light milky haze is seen in the fields, but they remain fully reflective. The glassy surfaces are primarily a bright pumpkin-orange color, and no handling marks are to be found. Struck from the proof dies with the diagnostic doubling on the digits in the date. This coin was sold as part of the Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection, in 1999, where it was identified as being of the sharply doubled date variety (Breen-6107), described by Walter Breen in his Complete Encyclopedia of U.S. and Colonial Coins,.
Ex: Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 10/1999), lot 234, where it realized 10,350.00. (#7634) (NGC ID# 25EU, PCGS# 7634)
