    Description

    1876 Gold Dollar, PR66 Cameo
    Sole Finest Cameo Example Graded

    1876 G$1 PR66 Cameo NGC. Few proofs survive of this date in any unimpaired grade and certainly far fewer still in the high Premium Gem proof grade level with Cameo designation. This piece is sole and highest-graded Cameo example of the date at NGC (12/15), although there is also one NGC-certified PR66 Ultra Cameo that appeared in our auctions in 2011 and 2013, bringing $27,600 and $28,200, respectively.

    Only 3,200 circulation-strike 1876 gold dollars were coined, plus 45 proofs recorded, an anomalously large amount likely related to the American Centennial observances. It is likely not all of those proof coins were sold, however, with the rest being likely melted or placed into circulation. The caramel-gold devices on this piece are remarkably smooth and free of marks, providing abundant contrast against deeply mirrored fields. The highest-graded Cameo piece at PCGS is a single PR65 Cameo coin.
