    Description

    1884 PR 64 Cameo NGC. Proofs of 1884 are very rare by any measure. According to mint records, only 45 pieces were struck, and of that number very few exist today. Estimates of the number of survivors range from a low of 7-8 pieces (Akers) to as many as 10 (Breen). We tend to agree with Walter's higher estimate.
    This is an absolutely stunning coin. The devices are heavily frosted and contrast strongly against the illimitible depth of mirrored reflectivity in the fields. There are a couple of small marks on the obverse that prevent a gem grade, most notably a small lintmark in the field behind Liberty's lowest hair curl. The reverse is immaculate and very nearly perfect. A remarkable piece of proof gold that should see much interest from a wide range of bidders. (NGC ID# 28FN, PCGS# 8824)
