Description

Choice Proof 1887 Gold Dollar
Attractive Cameo Example

1887 G$1 PR64 Cameo NGC. The 1887 gold dollar had a proof mintage of 1,043 pieces. Q. David Bowers states that only a small portion of this mintage was saved by numismatists, and estimates a surviving population of 110-140 pieces today. There has always been pressure on this small population because the business strike mintage was only 7,500 coins, making the issue scarce in all grades and formats. This is an especially attractive example that shows stark contrast between the "white" devices and unfathomably "black" fields. A few light contact marks account for the PR64 grade. Census: 30 in 64 Cameo, 46 finer (11/12).
From The Ives Devos Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EX, PCGS# 87637)
