Description:
1888 Reddish-Tinted Gold Dollar
Sharply Contrasted PR66 Cameo
1888 G$1 PR66 Cameo NGC. Probably only 150 to 200 individual pieces exist today out of the original proof mintage of 1,079 coins. This coin was struck from the die pairing for proofs that shows filling within the DO of DOLLAR, and the fields have the orange-peel effect seen on most proof gold produced in this time period. The surfaces have pronounced, deep reddish-gold color, which gives the coin the appearance of untampered originality. Numerous small lint marks occur over each side, a trait commonly found on proof gold dollars produced in the 1870s and 1880s. Pronounced contrast is seen between the deeply mirrored fields and frosted devices. Rarely seen finer. Census: 17 in 66 Cameo, 7 finer (7/11).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EY, PCGS# 87638)
