    Gem Cameo Proof 1888 Gold Dollar
    CAC Gold Label

    1888 G$1 PR65 Cameo NGC. CAC Gold Label. Calling this piece a "mere" Cameo Gem proof seems too low by contemporary standards, and CAC agreed, granting this piece a gold label. As high as the quality a PR65 Cameo grade implies must be, this piece exceeds it, showing a few small planchet flaws on the reverse but almost no post-striking defects. Both sides appear black-and-gold at the correct angle to the light. The fields flash when tilted, while the frost over the well-defined devices is subtly sparkling and enduring. Thanks to the special obverse, the specimen displays well. Census: 14 in 65 Cameo, 19 finer (6/12).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EY, PCGS# 87638)
