    MS67 ★ Prooflike 1866 Gold Dollar

    1866 G$1 MS67 ★ Prooflike NGC. Glowing white-gold devices rise above the seamless mirrored fields. This flawless Superb Gem has the look of a high grade proof, but is a business strike from a low mintage of 7,100 pieces. The strike is full except near the wreath knot. The NGC census for high grade business strike 1866 gold dollars is relatively complex. Three pieces are certified as MS67 without a Star or a Prooflike designation. Two (including the present coin) are certified as MS67 ★ Prooflike. An additional two pieces are graded MS68 but not Prooflike, while one piece is certified MS68 Prooflike. None of these three MS68 examples have received a Star designation. Thus, the present piece is tied with one other for the honor of finest certified (as of 6/06) among those with a Star designation, which is awarded for superior eye appeal.
