    1891 Silver Dollar, PR67+ Cameo
    Dramatic Contrast, Conditionally Rare

    1891 $1 PR67+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. This Superb Gem Cameo proof is among the highest-graded pieces at PCGS, an ideal Registry coin and a major condition rarity. PCGS lists no Deep Cameos this fine, and only two Cameos are finer than this coin at that service. The Simpson piece is the sole PR67 Cameo with a Plus designation (9/20). The eye appeal alone is exceptional, and the preservation is virtually flawless. Dramatic white-on-black contrast is apparent on both sides at all angles, warmed by the faintest hint of champagne color. Peripheral amber, gold, blue, and violet toning frames each side. Slight strike softness on the eagle's breast and the hair above Liberty's ear is not unusual for the 1891 proof. Population: 3 in 67 (1 in 67+) Cameo, 2 finer (9/20).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27ZL, PCGS# 87326)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
