    1881 Gold Dollar, Gem Cameo Proof
    Intriguing Patina and Bold Contrast

    1881 G$1 PR65 Cameo NGC. The proof gold dollar mintage took a sizable leap in 1881, to 87 pieces from the prior year's 36 coins; in addition, unlike previous increases, this one stuck as production vaulted into the three and then four figures in the following years. This is a wonderful Gem Cameo example of the 1881 proof gold dollar, exactingly struck and impressively contrasted. Orange-gold luster prevails in the outer mirrors, while the interior of the wreath offers intriguing lavender-to-blue overtones. Modestly patinated but highly impressive. Census: 5 in 65 Cameo, 1 finer (3/13).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2010), lot 1512, which realized $9,200.
    (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25ES, PCGS# 87631)
