    1885 Gold Dollar, PR67 Ultra Cameo
    One of the Finest Examples Known

    1885 G$1 PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. CAC. JD-2, R.5. A substantial proof mintage of 1,105 pieces gives collectors the illusion of ready availability. However, only 200 to 300 proofs are estimated to have survived of both varieties and in all grades. For specialists, the 1885 presents two variants, one with a lump on the forehead (JD-1) and the other with a twisted die line (drool) behind the mouth of Liberty (JD-2). Many of the survivors are non-contrasted and the survivors follow a bell curve of availability with more Cameo examples available (68) than non-Cameo (21) or Ultra Cameo pieces (19). In PR67 Ultra Cameo only six other pieces have been certified by NGC (how many are resubmissions?) with a mere two proofs finer (9/19). The surfaces on this Superb Gem are bright yellow-gold with deeply mirrored fields and devices that display starkly contrasting mint frost. The fields display the little-understood rippled effect known as "orange peel," a texture that is frequently seen on proof gold coinage until 1900 or so. This is an exceptional opportunity to acquire a proof gold dollar.
