Description:
Smooth and Flashy 1888 Three Dollar, PR 66 Cameo NGC
1888 $3 PR 66 Cameo NGC. The penultimate year of three dollar production, 1888 witnessed the delivery of 291 proof specimens. With an extant population of perhaps 65 pieces, this issue is the least rare proof three dollar gold piece. Outside the context of this series, of course, this issue is anything but common and this gorgeous Gem has yet to be surpassed at either NGC or PCGS (5/00). The cameo contrast greets the viewer with all of its splendor. Every feature is crisply defined and there are neither hairlines nor contact marks of consequence. There is, however, a curious "halo effect" in the fields, but this is due to porosity incurred at the Mint and has no bearing on the importance of this lot. (NGC ID# 28AX, PCGS# 88052)
