Description

Sparkling Gem Proof 1885 Gold Dollar

1885 G$1 PR66 PCGS. A sparkling and bright coin that shows no signs of toning or spotting. The surfaces are very clean as expected for the grade, with the mirror fields delightfully intact as well as the devices and lettering. Remarkably textured and reflective fields were perfected during this period at the Philadelphia Mint, and close examination with a loupe will allow for study of this production achievement. A naturally occurring example is found in the peeling of an orange, and the mirror fields somehow possess this alluring effect. For the collector, obtaining an example in Gem Proof is quite a challenge, with a paltry mintage of 1,105 there simply are not many around, and precious few remain in such high grades. Population: 20 in 66, 3 finer (11/05).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EV, PCGS# 7635)
