    Description

    Rarely Offered 1873 Gold Dollar in Proof

    1873 G$1 Closed 3 PR58 NGC. Both sides are still mostly brilliant despite some scuffiness in the fields. The diagnostic striking incompleteness on the uppermost feather in Liberty's headdress--the feature that distinguishes proof 1873 Gold Dollars from their business strike counterparts--is readily evident. An originally colored, orange-gold example with sharp overall definition. All proof 1873 Gold Dollars are of the Closed 3 variety, and only 25 coins were produced. The extant population numbers between 15 and 18 examples (per Breen, 1988), although NGC and PCGS have seen only seven coins in all grades (7/01). (NGC ID# 25EG, PCGS# 7623)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
