    Gem Proof 1887 Gold Dollar

    1887 G$1 PR66 PCGS. A closed reverse wreath and the centering of the 7 in the date below the A in DOLLAR not only attributes this coin as a proof, but distinguishes it from deceptive prooflike business strikes. Deep reddish-gold in appearance, both sides are uniformly reflective with razor sharp striking definition throughout. There are no disturbing hairlines or contact marks, and a light coating of opaque-milky patina lends full originality to this especially attractive example. The Mint produced 1,043 proof Gold Dollars in 1887, and the approximately 175 survivors are among the most plentiful specimen strikings of the type in today's market. Population: 12 in 66, 2 finer (3/05).(#7637) (Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EX, PCGS# 7637)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
