    PR67 Cameo 1886 Gold Dollar
    Condition Rarity

    1886 G$1 PR67 Cameo NGC. CAC. Officially 1,016 proof 1886 gold dollars were struck, though Q. David Bowers suggests a surviving population of "100 to 140 pieces" in his Guide Book of Gold Dollars. By the PR67 Cameo level, even this higher-mintage issue, popularly thought common, is a true condition rarity. This Cameo Superb Gem proof has glorious reflectivity, pale straw-gold with just a hint of orange-peel effect. The detail on Liberty's hair is a trifle soft for a proof, though the frost over both portrait and wreath is strong, easily of Cameo quality. A stray holder scratch on the clear plastic over the reverse should not be mistaken for damage to the coin. Census: 3 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (6/12).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EW, PCGS# 87636)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
