    1880 Gold Dollar
    Eye-Appealing PR65+ Ultra Cameo

    1880 G$1 PR65+ Ultra Cameo NGC. This lovely PR+ Ultra Cameo NGC-graded 1880 gold dollar marks the beginning of the last decade of production for this smallest federal gold denomination. Proof gold dollars during the 1880s were often given as Christmas presents, making them more available (due to larger net sales from the Mint) than earlier examples -- a boon for type collectors today. This piece displays deeply mirrored fields that set up strong contrast against the frosted devices. The orange-peel field texture is typical of proof gold of the era. The eye appeal is strong over yellow-gold surfaces with a bit of reddish patina. A loupe is needed to see a couple of tiny contact marks plus a pair of lint marks, mentioned but of no import. Census: 1 in 65+ Ultra Cameo, 1 finer (1/13).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 38DN, PCGS# 97630)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
