    Gorgeous PR65 Cameo 1858 Gold Dollar

    1858 G$1 PR65 Cameo PCGS Secure. CAC. The 1858 is one of the first accessible proof dates, accessible at least in relative terms; to quote Garrett and Guth, "Although a very rare coin, the Proof 1858 gold dollar is generally much more available than either the 1856 or 1857. The mintage is estimated to be around 25 or so coins. There are probably 15 to 20 coins still in collectors' hands."
    This Cameo Gem must be considered one of the great beauties of the issue. Bold lemon-yellow mirrors host modestly but distinctly frosted devices that produce a cameo effect as sharp as the coin's strike. A few minor disturbances appear on the reverse, most visibly two planchet flaws at the rim. Population: 1 in 65 Cameo, 1 finer (6/10).
