1885 G$1 PR66 NGC. CAC....
Tantalizing PR66 1885 Gold Dollar1885 G$1 PR66 NGC. CAC. The proof gold dollars of the 1880s are, in general terms, among the most accessible of the classic proof gold coins. In his A Guide Book of Gold Dollars, Q. David Bowers suggests that about 140 to 180 specimens of the 1885 proof issue survive; while this may seem unimpressive compared to the staggering figure of 1,105 pieces struck, Bowers states "it is doubtful if more than 200 Proofs were ever distributed to collectors."
In addition, few of the known representatives surpass the Gem level, as the present offering does. Its gleaming lemon-yellow fields host boldly impressed and appealingly frosted devices; despite the obvious cameo effect, however, no such designation appears on the prior-generation holder. Nonetheless, a definite beauty.
