Description

1871 PR63 Cameo Three Dollar
Probably Only 10 Survivors

1871 $3 PR63 Cameo NGC. Mint records show 30 proofs were minted, but few have survived. Although Dave Bowers estimated 15 to 20 known proofs, we believe the true number of survivors may be around 10 coins, including the Eliasberg PR65, the Trompeter PR64, the Smithsonian Institution PR64 Cameo, the Bass Collection proof, the Garrett Collection proof, and the Norweb impaired proof. Few other auction records exist, and only 16 submissions to NGC and PCGS have been certified. This lovely Cameo proof has excellent contrast with rich reddish-gold surfaces and deeply mirrored fields. A few scattered marks can be seen on each side. Census: 3 in 63 Cameo, 0 finer (11/11).
Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2007), lot 3363.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28AB, PCGS# 88034)
