    Impressive Ultra Cameo PR64 1858 Gold Dollar

    1858 G$1 PR64 Ultra Cameo NGC. Proof mintages of Gold Dollars were not recorded prior to 1859, but given the low certified populations, it is likely that less than 100 pieces were struck. Although moderate cameo contrast is not unusual for the issue, this is the only 1858 proof encapsulated as Ultra Cameo by NGC. The contrast is spectacular, as the frost is unbroken across the devices while the fields are deeply mirrored. A few very wispy hairlines are revealed in the fields when the coin is turned to a certain angle; while these limit the grade, they do not affect the eye appeal. The dies are rotated a few degrees clockwise. (PCGS# 97608)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
