    Pleasing Select 1872 Proof Gold Dollar

    1872 G$1 PR 63 PCGS. The combined business strike and proof mintage of this issue is only 3,530 pieces, and the surviving population of the latter delivery is only 14-15 examples. Uncommonly attractive for the grade, the present example is toned in rich orange-gold patina that is suggestive of originality. Although somewhat hazy, the fields reveal deep reflectivity at most angles. There is a small strike-through (as produced) in the left obverse field, but the surfaces are free of mentionable hairlines and contact marks.
    From the Tyler Dillon of Wellesley Collection. (NGC ID# 25EF, PCGS# 7622)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
