Description

1881 PR 65 Cameo NGC. Ex: Trompeter. There were 42 proof eagles minted in this year. Once again, it is a much rarer date than the mintage indicates. While not thought to be as rare as the 1878, '79, or '80, it is not far behind. Akers estimates that no more than 12 pieces survive. Only 2 pieces have been certified by NGC (11/98) and 3 by PCGS (11/98). Of the 5 pieces certified, this is the only one to grade PR 65 with the others PR 64 or less. This is an absolutely gem proof with fantastic cameo contrast, and lovely orange peel color. We would be surprised if a finer example ever surfaces. Identifiable by a faint lintmark just below the lowest arrowhead. Population: 1 in 65, none are finer (11/98).
Ex: Amon Carter Collection (Stack's, 1/84), lot 776. (NGC ID# 28FK, PCGS# 8821)
