Incredible Cameo Proof 1877 Double Eagle1877 $20 PR64 Ultra Cameo NGC. This piece is similar in overall appearance to the 1877 cameo proof that we offered for sale in the 2000 February Long Beach Sale from the Ed Trompeter Collection. But this piece has a tiny yet distinctive dot of a planchet void in the lower right obverse field that will serve as a useful pedigree marker when tracing this coin's provenance. Only 20 proofs were struck, and this issue's rarity matches that of the most elusive proofs from the 1860s. A needle-sharp near-Gem that will be a standout in even the finest cabinet of proof gold. The cameo contrast is profound on each side, with stark white on black contrast evident between the fields and devices. An exceptionally attractive double eagle and a coin that should raise quite a few eyebrows as the final hammer price is announced. Population: 1 in 64 Ultra Cameo, 1 finer (5/04).
From The Greenwich Collection, Part Two.(#99093) (Registry values: P6) (PCGS# 99093)
