    1877 Gold Dollar, PR66 Ultra Cameo
    Series Key, Only 20 Proofs Struck

    1877 G$1 PR66 ★ Ultra Cameo NGC. Proof gold dollars of 1877, having a minuscule mintage of 20 pieces, are extremely rare. A mere 11 to 14 examples are extant. To date (11/12), NGC and PCGS have graded a total of 21 specimens, a number of which are obviously resubmitted or crossover coins. "Regular" proofs make up five of the total, the finest PR65. Cameo examples account for 11 of the certified coins, with PR66 being the finest, and Deep/Ultra Cameos five coins. Of the latter, three are PR66 with none graded higher. NGC has assigned the Star designation to just one of the PR66 Ultra Cameos, the coin offered in the present lot. Both sides show bright yellow-gold, and the light striations in the field produce a strong cameo effect. For those making notes about die states, we notice die crumbling on UN. The only noticeable mark is a shallow pinscratch from the bottom of the I in UNITED.
