    Superb Cameo Proof 1882 Gold Dollar

    1882 G$1 PR66 Ultra Cameo NGC. A bright, wonderfully preserved yellow-gold specimen with excellent contrast. The clear 2 in the date is diagnostic of proof 1882 gold dollars, although the mirrored fields and appreciably frosted devices could never be mistaken for business strike production. As one would expect of the issue, the orange-gold surfaces exhibit boldly struck features that do full justice to Longacre's third and final Gold Dollar motif. Just 125 proofs were originally produced and the survival ratio is estimated to be about 50 percent. Population: 4 in 66 Ultra Cameo, 1 finer (7/03). (NGC ID# 25ES, PCGS# 97632)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
