Gem Proof 1885 Three Dollar Gold Piece1885 PR 65 PCGS. Of the 109 proofs originally struck for collectors, it is estimated that today only about 60 or so still remain, and these rank as very desirable to the numismatic community. The preponderance of survivors seem to rank in higher grades of preservation, and this specimen is certainly no exception. The deeply mirrored fields display the "orange-peel" effect common to proofs struck during this period. The devices have only slight frost, and as a result there is only modest field-to-device contrast visible. One of the finest examples known of this important date in the three dollar series. From the "Peerless" Collection of type coins. Population: 9 in 65, only 4 finer (4/98). (NGC ID# 28AU, PCGS# 8049)
