    1889 Gold Dollar, PR63
    JD-2, 30 to 40 Proofs Known

    1889 G$1 PR63 PCGS. CAC. JD-2, R.6. This is one of two known varieties for the final-year 1889 gold dollar proof (1,779 pieces minted). The second 8 in the date is close to the ribbon below. About 30 to 40 JD-2 representatives are known compared to 100 to 150 JD-1, according to John Dannreuther. This attractive orange-gold specimen lacks field-device contrast but features a distinct burnished appearance characteristic of some JD-2 proofs. Eye appeal is excellent, and quality for the grade clearly merited a CAC approval sticker.(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25EZ, PCGS# 7639)
