    Flashy PR 64 Cameo 1880 Three-Dollar Gold

    1880 PR 64 Cameo NGC. One of the flashier members in this nearly complete, exclusive club of proof three-dollar gold pieces. Both sides are bright and untoned, with excellent contrast. The obverse die, used for the fourth straight year on proofs, shows much evidence of die rust under magnification, including the prominent spot below and to the right of Liberty's ear that can be used to confirm its proof status. A short, fairly straight lint mark out from Liberty's mouth does not affect the coin's grade. Just 36 proofs were issued this year, in addition to a heavily hoarded 1,000 business strikes. Surviving proofs are thought to number around 24-26 pieces. (NGC ID# 28AN, PCGS# 8044)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
