    1861 Gold Dollar, PR67 Cameo
    None Certified Finer

    1861 G$1 PR67 Cameo NGC. JD-1, R.6. Although the mintage of 1861 proof gold dollars is recorded as 349 pieces the great majority was apparently melted as unsold, leaving few extant specimens. Walter Breen in his 1988 Encyclopedia says "probably fewer than 25 survive, some impaired." NGC/PCGS population data are more or less in line with Breen's estimates--the two services have graded 34 examples, 12 of which are Cameos (a number of these are undoubtedly resubmissions). John Dannreuther's table of significant examples includes 17 pieces, apparently all different examples.

    Immaculately preserved brass-gold surfaces greet the observer of this gorgeous Superb Gem. An exacting strike delivers crisp definition to the frosted design elements that stand out against the mirrored fields. This is a wonderful example of this Civil War era specimen that is sure to draw serious attention from aficionados of proof gold coinage. Census: 2 in 67 Cameo (1 in 67+), 0 finer (3/19).
