    Very Rare 1877 Proof Gold Dollar--A Cameoed Near-Gem

    1877 PR 64 Cameo NGC. The 1877 proof gold dollar is a very rare coin in any grade. This is the first example we have handled in at least seven years. Of the 20 proofs originally struck, estimates of survivors range from a low of 11-12 pieces (Taglione) to 12-14 (Breen). Genuine proofs, as opposed to first-strike business strikes, have the date slanting up to the right, and there is no lump on the cheek or jaw of Liberty. This is a sharply contrasted cameo proof whose orange-gold surfaces are lightly marked and show a few grade-limiting planchet flakes out of the left obverse field. A squiggly lint mark is also located between the A in DOLLAR and the second 7 in the date. A gold dollar of the greatest rarity and importance. Population: 4 in 64, only 2 finer (11/98). (NGC ID# 25EL, PCGS# 7627)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
