Description

Gem Cameo Proof 1883 Three-Dollar Gold

1883 PR 65 Cameo ANACS. A superior example of this rare proof three-dollar. Both business strikes and proofs are considerable rarities with only 900 and 89 pieces produced respectively of each. This is a stunning cameo proof with illimitible depth of mirrored reflectivity in the fields. The mint frost on the devices is considerable and starkly sets the devices against the black pools of reflectivity in the fields. The surfaces are essentially defect-free, close examination with a glass only reveals a stray hairline here and there and a few microscopic planchet flakes. The fields have the orange-peel effect often seen on this date and others from the 1880s, yielding even more visual interest to this significant rarity. (NGC ID# 28AS, PCGS# 8047)
