    Flashy 1880 Gold Dollar, MS66+ ★ Prooflike

    1880 G$1 MS66+ ★ Prooflike NGC. CAC. This flashy Premium Gem 1880 gold dollar is one of those low-mintage wonders that some knowledgeable contemporary collector must have snatched up before it ever had a chance to circulate, a well-known phenomenon from late in the series that produced a wealth of marvelously collectible examples for the numismatists of today. The surfaces are bright yellow-gold throughout, with deeply mirrored fields and frosted devices creating a prooflike effect, a function of the low mintage of 1,600 business strikes. The Star designation recognizes exceptional eye appeal.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25DJ, PCGS# 77581)

    Weight: 1.67 grams
