    1889 Gold Dollar, PR63
    Nice Color and Contrast

    1889 G$1 PR63 PCGS. The old green label holder from the early 1990s does not acknowledge the cameo contrast of this boldly reflective, sharply struck proof. The fields are deeply mirrored and accentuate the frosted motifs. The Indian's headdress is complete, and LIBERTY is visible, even though half of the letters are weak within the band. Although 1,779 proofs were produced, the high proof mintage is a "fooler" for the issue -- some of the proofs may have been melted, and others spent to account for the comparatively low number of grading events. This attractive gold dollar offers great quality for the grade. Population: 6 in 63, 32 finer (2/15).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25EZ, PCGS# 7639)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
