    1888 Gold Dollar, PR67 Ultra Cameo
    Optimal Field-Device Contrast

    1888 G$1 PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. The late-series gold dollars in proof format showed production totals that dramatically increased as dealers and collectors came to the realization that the series likely would not last much longer, given the mounting surfeit of Morgan dollars piling up in Treasury vaults. This created a fortunate situation today, where collectors can acquire nice examples of these late dates in top preservation, virtually as they fell from the dies 125 (give or take) years ago. This Superb Gem proof Ultra Cameo NGC-certified 1888 is a case in point: The reported production was 1,079 pieces, yet NGC shows three submissions in this top grade. A sharp strike, optimal field-device contrast, and excellent preservation all combine to make this among the finest available for the issue.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EY, PCGS# 97638)

    Weight: 1.70 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
