Description

1888 Three Dollar Gold, PR64 Cameo
Ideal Type Coin

1888 $3 PR64 Cameo NGC. CAC. The mintage of proof 1888 three dollar gold pieces is uncertain, due to some cryptic notes about deliveries in the Mint records, but the most often quoted figure is 291 pieces. This issue is certainly the most plentiful three dollar proof in today's market, making it a favorite choice of type collectors. The surviving population probably numbers 120-150 examples in all grades.

The present coin is an impressive Choice specimen, with sharply detailed design elements and deeply mirrored fields that contrast boldly with the frosty devices. The bright yellow-gold surfaces show the slight orange-peel texture of the best 19th century proofs, with only a few minor hairlines and contact marks. Eye appeal is outstanding. Census: 23 in 64 Cameo, 30 finer (9/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28AX, PCGS# 88052)
