    Elusive 1882 Proof Gold Dollar

    1882 G$1 PR66 PCGS. Although the Philadelphia Mint produced 125 proof Gold Dollars in 1882, no more than 55 coins are believed to have survived. Neither NGC nor PCGS has seen a single example finer than this carefully preserved Gem. Both sides are fully brought up with frosty devices and fields that shimmer beneath mottled crimson and tan-gray haziness. A pair of nearly horizontal contact marks in the obverse field before Liberty's nose are noted for pedigree purposes. Population: 7 in 66, 0 finer (10/01).
    From the Bill Dailey Collection. (NGC ID# 4G78, PCGS# 7632)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
