    Description

    1887 Gold Dollar, PR64 Ultra Cameo
    Glittering Late-Series Near-Gem

    1887 G$1 PR64 Ultra Cameo NGC. Clearly a proof, struck from the proof dies with the top of the wreath closed and 7 in the date wholly beneath the A in DOLLARS. The D, O, and A are filled. Dramatic cameo contrast elevates the frosted devices above jet-black mirrors, which are exceptionally deep throughout the coin except where Mint-related striations angle across the upper-left obverse. Some small areas of delicate lines and a few isolated patches of orange-peel texture are visible with a loupe, but do little to diminish the vibrant and rich, yellow-gold eye appeal that glitters from all points of this Choice Ultra Cameo proof. Census: 1 in 64 Ultra Cameo, 4 finer (1/18).(Registry values: P1) (PCGS# 97637)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
