    Ultra Cameo 1860 Gold Dollar, PR65
    One of the Finest Known

    1860 G$1 PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC. The 1860 proof gold dollar had an impossibly high mintage of 154 pieces. Perhaps Mint Director James Ross Snowden was anticipating larger numbers of collectors to buy proof gold in 1860 as he overanticipated the demand for silver and minor proofs. Only 15 to 20 individual proof gold dollars are believed known today. This is one of the finest with its essentially defect-free surfaces and sharply contrasting fields and devices. A couple of tiny lint marks and planchet voids appear on each side. Census: 4 in 65 Ultra Cameo, 1 finer (2/11).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# D9KJ, PCGS# 97610)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
