    1872 Ultra Cameo Gold Dollar, PR66
    Pronounced White-on-Gold Contrast

    1872 G$1 PR66 Ultra Cameo NGC. Many of the 30 gold dollar proofs struck in 1872 have apparently survived to the present day, judging from perusal of NGC/PCGS population data. However, few can match the beauty of this Premium Gem Ultra Cameo. It is one of seven Ultra/Deep Cameos seen by the two services (none have been certified by PCGS), some of which are likely resubmitted coins. Both sides present a stunning gold-on-black appearance, and each exhibits crisply struck, frosted design elements. The impeccably preserved yellow-gold surfaces are just a faint handling mark or two from an even higher grade. This piece possesses outstanding technical quality and aesthetic appeal.
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4-5/2009), lot 3593.
    From The Ives Devos Collection.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25EF, PCGS# 97622)

    Weight: 1.70 grams
