Description

1883 Three Dollar, PR65 Cameo
Deeply Contrasted, Bold Eye Appeal

1883 $3 PR65 Cameo NGC. Deeply contrasted orange-on-jet-black surfaces are the chief attribute of this stunning Gem Cameo proof 1883 three dollar gold piece, a piece among the few finest certified at either service. The lack of success of the three dollar gold denomination made it die a slow and lingering death, and business strike totals in the 1880s sunk to new lows. The circulation strikes for 1883 saw a mintage of 900 pieces, accompanied by 89 proofs. Both types were snapped up by collectors of the day, however -- fortunately for numismatists well over a century later. This piece offers blatant eye appeal, despite the few tiny field marks that possibly preclude an even finer grade. Census: 7 in 65 Cameo, 4 finer (2/13).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28AS, PCGS# 88047)
