Description:
Spectacular 1892 Dollar, PR67 Cameo
1892 $1 PR67 Cameo NGC. The 1892 proof dollars came from a relatively high mintage of 1,245 pieces. According to David Bowers, writing in his Silver and Trade dollars reference (1993), this is explained by "... their inclusion in 1892 silver Proof sets, which were in special demand due to the new Barber designs for the dime, quarter, and half dollar."
Wisps of light tan-gold color gravitate to the obverse rim, and extend slightly into the fields on the reverse. The frosted devices yield stunning contrast with the deeply mirrored fields. The design elements are sharply struck, except for the usual weakness in the centers. In this regard, Bowers says: "The situation of flatly struck Proof coins began in 1888. Dollars dated 1892 continue the trend and show lightness of strike above Miss Liberty's ear ... and on the eagle's breast feathers." The immaculately preserved surfaces do not show any marks that could be used for pedigree purposes. Census: 17 in 67 Cameo, 4 finer (4/10).(Registry values: N4719) (PCGS# 87327)
