Description

Splendid 1888 Three Dollar, PR65 Cameo

1888 $3 PR65 Cameo NGC. In 1888 the Philadelphia Mint struck 5,000 business strikes and 291 proofs of the 1888 three dollar gold piece. Apparently every business strike was coined from a doubled obverse die, and every proof was coined from a normal, non-doubled obverse.
The present specimen is a remarkable Cameo proof with fully brilliant yellow-gold surfaces. The fields are deeply mirrored and admirably display the boldly defined and frosty devices. A few tiny planchet flakes and other minute imperfections are of little significance. Census: 18 in 65 Cameo, 21 finer (12/08).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28AX, PCGS# 88052)
