Description:
Splendid 1888 Gold Dollar, PR66 Cameo
1888 G$1 PR66 Cameo NGC. The tiny mintages of proof gold dollars in the 1850s through 1870s saw large increases, into the low thousands, in the late 1880s as collectors realized that the series would likely come to an end, their need obviated by the Morgan silver dollar and minor silver coinage that actually circulated. Proof 1888 gold dollars were struck to the extent of 1,079 coins, and today examples can be found in grades as high as PR67.
The present splendid example displays deep, glassy fields with a noticeable orange-peel effect. Moderate mint frost is thicker on the reverse than on the obverse. A few tiny planchet flaws on each side, noted under a loupe, do little to dampen the appeal. Census: 23 in 66 Cameo, 6 finer (4/09).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EY, PCGS# 87638)
