    Phenomenal 1863 Dollar in PR 64

    1863 PR 64 PCGS. According to mint records, only 50 proofs were produced during this Civil War year, so the rarity of this gold dollar has never been in question. To date, only five coins have been certified PR 64, and only three finer (6/96); there may only be about a dozen survivors. In addition to this rarity, we can add superlative condition. The cameo effect on the obverse of this near-gem is pronounced, with the light-gold satiny head of Liberty set against the orange coloring of the mirrored fields. The obverse shows the typical die polish below the ear. There is one spot of darker toning in the field below the ED, otherwise the visual effect is complete. The reverse also features a quality strike, with lighter golden color. There are two minute lines above the O in DOLLAR as the only noted impairment. (NGC ID# 25E6, PCGS# 7613)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
