Exceptional 1886 Three Dollar Gold PR64 Cameo

1886 $3 PR64 Cameo NGC. Like Dave Bowers, Garrett and Guth (2006) consider this issue to be one of the more readily available in the proof three dollar gold series; they also note that, per Walter Breen, one of the reverse proof dies was utilized to produce business strikes. This piece is obviously a proof specimen, as attested to by the richly frosted devices and the deeply mirrored fields. Crisply struck and essentially untoned, except for hints of red-orange coloration near the obverse periphery. There are a few faint hairlines and wispy slide marks, also located on the obverse, that preclude an even higher numerical grade, but the Cameo designation is not in doubt. A scarce and supremely attractive specimen, with near-Ultra Cameo fields on each side. Census: 34 in 64 Cameo, 17 finer (11/07). (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28AV, PCGS# 88050)
