    1878 Gold Dollar, Prooflike MS65
    Gold CAC Sticker, First Generation Holder

    1878 G$1 MS65 PCGS. Gold CAC. This phenomenal 1878 gold dollar exhibits overt prooflike tendencies on each side, the result of frosty, needle-sharp devices surrounded by reflective and largely unmarked fields. Only 3,000 gold dollars were minted in 1878, and PCGS estimates that merely 25 pieces survive in Gem condition or higher. Encapsulated in a first generation holder with a gold CAC sticker that affirms this coin in undergraded by at least one grade point. Population: 16 in 65, 7 finer (11/15).
    Ex: Fontaine Collection / Rarities Sale (Bowers and Merena, 8/2010), lot 1452, which realized $9,200.(Registry values: N2998)
