    Exceptional PR66 ★ 1876 Gold Dollar, Ex: BRS Legacy Collection

    1876 G$1 PR66 ★ Ultra Cameo NGC. Ex: BRS Legacy Collection. The diagnostic die file mark from the base of the A toward M is only faintly visible on this piece, perhaps indicating that it was one of the last proofs struck. Of course, the date slants noticeably down and to the right, as seen on all legitimate proof strikings of this date. However, such diagnostics are mere trivialities on this piece as it is such an obvious proof. The fields show unfathomable depth of reflectivity and the devices are heavily frosted, which give the coin its Ultra Cameo designation. As stated in the description for the PR64 above, only 45 proofs were struck of the 1876 gold dollar. This is among the finest examples certified of this important date. Two other PR66 ★ coins have been graded by NGC, and only one piece is finer, an NGC-certified PR67. This wonderfully preserved proof is unhairlined, yet it displays several small but useful pedigree identifiers in the way of lint marks and planchet flakes. The most noticeable is a tiny flake out of the left obverse field in front of Liberty's chin. There is also a tiny J-shaped lint mark on Liberty's jawline, and a couple of contact marks in the field above the R in DOLLAR. An exceptionally attractive example of this rare gold dollar, and a coin that also has a distinctive pedigree.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25EK, PCGS# 97626)

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
