    Description

    1886 G$1 PR 66 NGC. In terms of overall rarity, the 125 surviving 1886 proof gold dollars are comparable to those of the other post-1883 issues. In high grades, however, this issue is quite difficult to locate as most known examples show impairments of one kind or another. This lovely Gem is among the finest certified and is bettered by a lone PR 67 PCGS specimen. Although not deeply cameoed, the surfaces show a markedly brighter appearance in the fields. The devices are fully brought up in all areas and the overall color is honey-gold in tint. A small planchet flaw (as produced) in the obverse field before Liberty's nose is a useful pedigree marker. (NGC ID# 25EW, PCGS# 7636)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
