    Underrated Proof 1888 Gold Dollar

    1888 G$1 PR 64 PCGS. Since public interest started to wane in the late 1880s, many of the 1,079 proof gold dollars produced by the Mint in 1888 were melted as unsold. While numismatic scholars estimate that about 165 pieces remain in today's market, unimpaired, high quality survivors are scarce and always in demand. This is a suitably cameoed example with bright, orange-gold coloration. Neither side reveals distractions that would seem to rule out a full Gem grade.
    From the Christopher Young Collection. (NGC ID# 25EY, PCGS# 7638)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
