Description:
Gem Proof 1888 Three Dollar Gold
1888 $3 PR65 PCGS. Bowers' series reference pegs the proof mintage of this issue at 200, while the current Guide Book puts the number at 291. Either figure would put the mintage at the high point for the series, however. Most of the surviving proofs grade PR63 or PR64, although PR65 and PR66 specimens are obtainable; there is even a single PR67 that has been graded at NGC (6/09). Those figures seem to point to both a high mintage and subsequent good preservation, unsurprisingly for a late-series proof issue of a denomination that would soon end and was always viewed as a curiosity.
This Gem piece is certified in a green-label holder, and today would almost certainly garner a Cameo designation. The yellow-gold surfaces show considerable field-device contrast, and few signs of contact appear on either side. Today, the grade appears fairly conservative for the Gem level assigned. Population: 25 in 65, 16 finer (6/09).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28AX, PCGS# 8052)
