    Cameo Gem Proof 1884 Gold Dollar
    High-Grade Example of Turning-Point Issue

    1884 G$1 PR65 Cameo NGC. CAC. The 1884 gold dollar gave the denomination its first four-figure proof mintage, setting the stage for five more years of high production. This is a Cameo Gem specimen of that landmark issue, pale yellow-gold and moderately contrasted with modest "orange-peel" texture in the fields, as seen on many of the best specimens. Coins combining this level of contrast with high-quality preservation are rarities. While the older-style NGC holder has several scratches and a crack at the top, these should not be interpreted as damage to the coin. Census: 12 in 65 Cameo, 19 finer (6/12).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EU, PCGS# 87634)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
