    Gorgeous Choice Cameo Proof 1881 Gold Dollar

    1881 G$1 PR64 Cameo NGC. As the California Gold Rush waned and the gold dollar lingered in a low-mintage state, the denomination took a strange direction; whereas previous issues consisted almost exclusively of circulation-strike pieces, coins to be spent on the frontier and in the more settled cities, the issues of the 1880s focused more on proofs, a change in target audience from Mark Twain to urbane. In 1881, though, the transformation was not yet complete, and only 87 proof examples were struck that year. This attractive survivor offers distinct contrast and strong detail. The powerful straw-gold mirrors show only a few faint hairlines. Census: 6 in 64 Cameo, 5 finer (6/08).
