Description:
Gem Cameo Proof 1881 Three Dollar Gold
1881 $3 PR66 Cameo NGC. The 1881 is an especially popular date in the series of three-dollar gold pieces, obviously stemming from its minuscule business strike production of just 500 coins. The distribution of proofs was actually stepped-up to a new high of 54 pieces in 1881 and a decent percentage remains today, perhaps numbering as high as 30-35 coins.
This specimen is certainly among the finer pieces known of this elusive date, with immaculate two-toned surfaces draped in orange-gold patina. Inspection with a glass yields only a solitary, inconspicuous hairline in the left obverse field, the only blemish of any kind on this extraordinary 1881 proof. Population: 4 in 66, 1 finer (7/03).
From The Jerry Doty Collection. (#8045) (NGC ID# 28AP, PCGS# 8045)
