    Gorgeous 1879 Gold Dollar, PR64

    1879 G$1 PR64 PCGS. The 1879 proof gold dollar is a tricky issue. Only 30 proofs were struck, and apparently the same dies were used on both proofs and business strikes. As a result, the availability of this date is skewed by old auction appearances when first-impression business strikes were offered as proofs. When viewing this coin, there is absolutely no doubt about its proof status. The fields are deeply mirrored on each side, with strong mint frost over the devices giving the coin a notable (although unacknowledged) cameo contrast. Close examination with a magnifier reveals a few wispy hairlines, a couple of tiny planchet flaws, and rich orange-gold color interspersed with the occasional dash of lilac. Population: 3 in 64, 2 finer (1/09).(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25EN, PCGS# 7629)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
