    Gem Proof 1888 Gold Dollar
    Multiple Obverse Dies

    1888 G$1 PR65 PCGS. The 1888 proof gold dollars are seen with ERT in LIBERTY normal or weak, suggesting at least two different obverses for the coinage of 957 pieces. This piece shows a clear LIB, a faint E, and most of RT absent, while only the right half of Y is visible. Minor extra outlines around some of the letters in DOLLAR are also noted. This Gem proof is medium yellow-gold with considerable contrast, although undesignated as Cameo. Light field chatter on each side prevents an even finer grade but appears only under a loupe. Population: 30 in 65, 10 finer (3/13).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EY, PCGS# 7638)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
