    1881 Gold Dollar, PR64 Deep Cameo
    Only 87 Proofs Produced

    1881 G$1 PR64 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. Unlike later dates of gold dollars from the 1880s, the 1881 is a low-mintage date. Only 87 proofs were produced. Proofs and prooflike business strikes have frequently been confused in the past. There is only one published diagnostic for proofs, a small unfinished area in the die between the lower left part of the D and the wreath. The fields are deeply reflective mirrors, which establish a strong background contrast against the heavily frosted devices. A curious strike-through is present on this piece, which should aid as a pedigree identifier: An oval-shaped, nearly perfect O is seen to the right of the second S in STATES. Population: 6 in 64 Deep Cameo, 6 finer (3/11).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 26LC, PCGS# 97631)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
