    1887 Gold Dollar, PR67 Ultra Cameo
    Tied For Finest Certified

    1887 G$1 PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. JD-1, Low R.5. Two die varieties exist for the 1887 proof gold dollar. This reverse features the 7 in the date centered under the A in DOLLAR. The other reverse shows the 8 centered under the first L. Production was limited to 7,500 circulation strikes and 1,043 proofs for the year. While 1887 gold dollar proofs can generally be obtained in PR64 and PR65 with Cameo contrast, Ultra Cameo representatives are rare. In fact, this piece is tied with one other PR67 Ultra Cameo coin for finest at NGC, and none match this quality at PCGS (11/19). Fully frosted devices are surrounded by seemingly depthless mirrors showing the orange-peel texture that makes 19th proof gold coinage so desirable. Captivating visual appeal.
    From The Sakura Collection. (Registry values: P1) (PCGS# 97637)
