    Rare 1869 Gold Dollar, Unique PR65 Cameo Grade at PCGS

    1869 G$1 PR65 Cameo PCGS. This is an important date in the Gold Dollar series in both business strike and proof formats. Examples of the latter delivery were produced to the extent of just 5,900 pieces, while the specimen strikings have a recorded mintage of only 25 coins. A splendid survivor of the latter delivery (of which only 14 or 15 pieces are believed extant), this glowing Gem displays lovely golden-rose color. The cameo contrast is most marked on the reverse, but it is also appreciable on the obverse. There are no singularly mentionable blemishes, as befits the grade, and the strike is razor sharp throughout. The only proof 1869 Gold Dollar with a Cameo designation at PCGS (1/03). (NGC ID# 27N2, PCGS# 87619)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
