    Description

    NGC 1896 PR 65 Cameo. Of the 78 proofs struck in 1896, both Breen and Akers have estimated that perhaps only 20-25 still exist today. However, less than half that number have been certified by the combined staffs of PCGS and NGC according to their most recent reports of (2/93) and (1/93) respectively. This coin has been so recently certified that it does not show up on the census data yet from NGC. It is a phenomenal coin with incredibly deep mirrors that provide a nearly black backdrop to the frosted golden devices seen on each side. In the obverse fields there are a few hazy spots, but the reverse is free from this. A very impressive type coin and undoubtedly one of the finest known of this scarce date. (NGC ID# 28G3, PCGS# 8836)
