1887 G$1 PR66+ Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. JD-1, Low R.5. The 1887 proof gold dollar comes from a fairly substantial proof mintage of 1,043 pieces, but only a small portion of those coins survive. Most are of the JD-1 variety, a die pair that was used for both proofs and circulation strikes. The die state of the obverse is a reliable distinguishing characteristic between prooflike business strikes and actual proofs. The Simpson coin is in the early die state without excessive polishing in the recesses of the portrait, and is thus an unquestioned proof. In PR66+, it is also the sole finest Deep Cameo proof at PCGS. Glimmering fields yield the sought-after orange peel effect, while the frosted yellow-gold devices provide stark cameo contrast. The surfaces are beautifully preserved, and eye appeal is excellent. Population: 4 in 66 (1 in 66+) Deep Cameo, 0 finer (9/20).(Registry values: P1)
