    1883 Gold Dollar, PR67 Ultra Cameo
    Tied for Finest Certified

    1883 G$1 PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. Only 207 proof gold dollars were minted in 1883, and the issue is seldom encountered today. Q. David Bowers estimates a surviving population of 50-75 examples in all grades, and it is doubtful any surviving specimen can match the quality of the coin offered here. This piece is tied with one other PR67 Ultra Cameo at NGC, and there are none finer than PR66 Deep Cameo at PCGS (6/12). Two varieties are known for the issue, with this example representing the less available variety with the repunched date.
    The present coin is a spectacular specimen, with deeply mirrored honey-gold fields of unfathomable depth. The pristine surfaces display the characteristic orange peel effect seen on proofs of this era. The strike is razor-sharp throughout, and the field-device contrast is profound. The visual appeal of this coin is overwhelming.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25ET, PCGS# 97633)

    Weight: 1.70 grams
