    Cameo Proof 1883 Gold Dollar

    1883 G$1 PR63 Cameo NGC. Proof Gold Dollar production at the Philadelphia Mint ratcheted up to 207 pieces in 1883 from 125 coins in 1882. Despite this difference, these two issues are similar in overall rarity. The date that concerns us here, the 1883, has an extant population of perhaps fewer than 70 specimens. The present survivor displays a rich, reddish-orange sheen with strong reflective qualities in the fields. Every device is sharply struck with a moderate overlay of mint frost. Scattered hairlines account for the PR63 designation. The variety specialist might be interested to know that this coin displays repunching on the 3 in the date. In addition, the tops of both 8s in the date are partially filled. Per Breen (1988), both business strike and proof 1883 Gold Dollars were produced from this die pair. (NGC ID# 25ET, PCGS# 87633)
