    Description

    Rare 1880 Proof Gold Dollar

    1880 G$1 Proof, Improperly Cleaned, NCS. A needle-sharp specimen that has impressive Cameo contrast, although NCS has not designated the piece as such. Peach patina clings to the left borders. A few patches of wispy hairlines are present in the fields, in addition to some minute mint-made lintmarks. The 1884 to 1889 proof mintages were over 1,000 pieces each, but this is not the case for the 1880 which has a proof production of only 36 pieces.(#7630) (Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25EP, PCGS# 7630)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
