    1863 Gold Dollar, PR66 Deep Cameo
    Among the Finest Known

    1863 G$1 PR66 Deep Cameo PCGS. JD-1, High R.6. Only 50 proof gold dollars were struck in 1863, and of that number it is estimated (by JD) that 16 to 18 separate examples are known today in all grades. John Dannreuther makes a convincing argument that these proofs were struck in two batches and not all delivered on March 23, as previously believed. Some proof 1863 gold dollars (this piece included) show slightly attenuated detail on the first feather in the headdress and polishing is evident behind the letters RTY in LIBERTY. The fields are deeply mirrored with strongly contrasting mint frost evident over the devices. Each side is surrounded at the margins by noticeable reddish patina. Outstanding technical merit as well as strong eye appeal. Population: 2 in 66 Deep Cameo, 1 finer (11/19).
