Description

1878 8 Tailfeathers Dollar, PR66 Cameo
Noteworthy Cameo Contrast

1878 8TF $1 PR66 Cameo NGC. VAM-14.3. Proof specimens of this initial and briefly used design are scarce and comparatively underpriced. Bowers estimates that 300-500 pieces were struck, but, of course, far fewer are known today and survivors are more apt to be mishandled than the later issues. This deeply reflective proof is exceptionally flashy with untoned centers and a touch of reddish-golden peripheral color. The major design elements display a degree of contrast with the glassy fields that would be considered mild on issues such as the 1896-1898, but are noteworthy for 1878. Census: 13 in 66 Cameo, 6 finer (3/11).
From The Slotkin Family Trust Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2572, PCGS# 87311)
