    Superior 1858 Gold Dollar, PR64 Cameo

    1858 G$1 PR64 Cameo PCGS. The number of proof gold dollars minted in 1858 is unknown. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth (2006) estimate the mintage to be "around 25 or so coins," with "probably 15 to 20 coins still in collectors' hands." David Bowers (2008) estimates the same number of extant specimens. PCGS and NGC have graded a total of 35 pieces, a number of which are undoubtedly resubmissions or crossovers.
    The present near-Gem Cameo displays yellow-gold surfaces splashed with whispers of apricot on the obverse. A decisive strike emboldens the design features, all of which stand out against the mirrored fields. A few trivial handling marks barely prevent the attainment of Gem status. This is a super coin for the proof gold specialist, as it is hard to imagine locating a specimen with the superior technical quality and aesthetic appeal possessed by this example. Population: 1 in 64 Cameo, 1 finer (6/09).(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25DZ, PCGS# 87608)
