    Ultra Cameo Proof 1883 Gold Dollar

    1883 G$1 PR64 Ultra Cameo NGC. Mint records indicate that 207 Proofs were coined, and probably a little less than half of them still survive today. Only two deep cameo examples of this date have ever been certified, the other a PCGS PR66. This is a splendid Choice Proof with brilliant yellow-gold color and excellent contrast. A few faint hairlines and other minor imperfections in the fields keep this out of the Gem class. The first 8 in the date has slight evidence of recutting visible inside the upper and lower loops. The second 8 has similar recutting that is much more visible. In his Proof Encyclopedia, Walter Breen rated this variety as slightly rarer than the other variety of Proof with a normal date. This is an exciting opportunity for the gold dollar specialist.(#97633) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25ET, PCGS# 97633)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
