Description

1888 PR 64 Cameo NGC. Ex: Trompeter. One of a listed mintage of 72 proofs struck of this date. Akers states that this date is rarer than the 1887, and further states that no more than 20 pieces survive. The small number of certified coins, 2 by NGC and 4 by PCGS, seems to hint that even 20 might be on the high side. We feel that this is a very underrated, and extremely rare date in proof. This piece is tied for the finest certified. A lighter orange than some of the previous "orange peel" pieces, it is, nevertheless, just as attractive, exhibiting marked contrast, and watery fields. Population: 1 in 65, with none finer (11/98).
Ex: Eliasberg Collection (Bowers & Ruddy Galleries, 10/82), lot 788. (NGC ID# 28FT, PCGS# 8828)
