Description

    Bright Cameo 1872 Three-Dollar

    1872 PR 64 NGC. We are privileged to offer two examples of this extremely rare proof at this sale, and when one considers the number of survivors likely from a proof mintage of just 30 pieces, one begins to realize that is no throwaway statement. This may be the lesser piece gradewise, but it needs no apologies in the eye appeal department. Bright and flashy with the expected deep orange-peel fields and lightly frosted devices, the net effect is a cameo that would please even if the date were not so rare. A few scattered hairlines account for the grade, but do little to diminish the overwhelming pizzazz of this lovely coin. (NGC ID# 28AC, PCGS# 8035)
