Description

    1889 Dollar, Nearly Brilliant PR66
    With Unacknowledged Contrast

    1889 $1 PR66 NGC. While the 1889 proof dollar is often found with a soft strike and minimal contrast, this piece is certainly the exception. The centers are almost fully brought up, and the field-device contrast is nearly strong enough for a Cameo designation. This nearly flawless example would be an excellent type coin as it nears technical perfection, while at the same time providing significant contrast without paying extra to actually have it acknowledged on the insert. Census: 18 in 66, 7 finer (5/11).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 27ZJ, PCGS# 7324)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
