    1876 Gold Dollar
    PR66★ Ultra Cameo
    Only 24-28 Proofs Believed Extant

    1876 G$1 PR66★ Ultra Cameo NGC. JD-1. Ex: BRS Legacy Collection. The most obvious diagnostic of this die pair is the heavily polished forward feather in the headdress. The fields show unfathomable depth of reflectivity and the devices are heavily frosted, which give the coin its Ultra Cameo designation. Only 45 proofs were struck of the 1876 gold dollar. It is reliably estimated that between 24 and 28 pieces may have survived today in all grades. 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.
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2006), lot 3401.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25EK, PCGS# 97626)
