Description:
Superb 1885 Gold Dollar
PR67 Cameo
1885 G$1 PR67 Cameo NGC. The 1885 date is one of the more available gold dollars in proof, if one believes the auction records. Some caution should be used in evaluating the number of auction offerings, as many deceptive, high-grade business strikes are found on the market. The difficulty in distinguishing real proofs from these high-end, regular-issue pieces probably resulted in many errant listings in earlier catalogs.
From a proof mintage of 1,105 pieces, this elegant coin ranks high in aesthetic appeal as well as technical grade. The deeply mirrored fields contrast boldly with the sharply detailed devices, producing the vivid Cameo effect. The rich, orange peel surfaces are diagnostic of true proofs. This specimen is nearly unimprovable. Census: 10 in 67 Cameo, 2 finer (11/08).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EV, PCGS# 87635)
