Description

Gem Cameo Proof 1885 Gold Dollar

1885 G$1 PR65 Cameo NGC. Production of proof gold dollars ratcheted up to 1,105 pieces in 1885, an all-time high for this denomination. This issue is the most readily available proof gold dollar, and perhaps 125 examples survive at all levels of preservation. Both sides are essentially brilliant with no mentionable patina. The proof qualities are evident at even the most casual glance with powerfully struck, frosty devices and highly reflective fields yielding a pronounced cameo contrast. With smooth features overall, this coin is a no-questions Gem. For future identification purposes, a single lateral mark is seen to the right of the 5 of the date.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EV, PCGS# 87635)

The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
