PR66 Ultra Cameo
The current specimen, far from being damaged or impaired in any way, is an extremely impressive representative that is unmatched for overall quality at either of the major grading services. As of January 2008, this is the sole example to be certified as PR66 Ultra Cameo by NGC, with none finer. PCGS has graded no 1900 proof finer than PR65 Deep Cameo.
It would be difficult to overstate the eye appeal of this magnificent Premium Gem. At arm's length it presents a stark white-on-black appearance, as the intensely watery fields provide an impressive backdrop for the fully frosted devices. Closer inspection under low magnification reveals that all of the design elements have been reproduced with razor-sharp precision, including the finer details of Liberty's hair and the sometimes incomplete lower details of the eagle. Also noteworthy is the cleanliness of the impeccably preserved surfaces, both on the obverse and the reverse.
This is truly a remarkable coin that seems virtually unimprovable, and would enhance the overall standing of any advanced collection of proof gold coinage.
