Lovely 1885 Gold Dollar, PR66 Cameo1885 G$1 PR66 Cameo NGC. The last six proof gold dollar issues saw remarkably high mintages of over 1,000 coins each. Garrett and Guth, in discussing the 1884 issue, note that some believe the increased demand was due to jewelry use, but the low proportion of impaired survivors dispels that notion. It seems more likely that proof gold dollars became popular gifts, since the mintages of proof gold dollars of the 1880s range from a mere 36 pieces to 1,779 specimens; this range is too broad to put completely on increased interest in numismatics.
The gleaming surfaces of this marvelous Premium Gem are primarily yellow-orange with hints of honey. The strike is crisp, and the portrait and wreath offer obvious contrast with the faintly textured fields. An excellent candidate for the gold type enthusiast. Census: 15 in 66 Cameo, 11 finer (2/08).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EV, PCGS# 87635)
