    Description

    1882 Three Dollar, PR64 Cameo
    Strongly Contrasted Example

    1882 $3 PR64 Cameo PCGS. JD-1, R.5. The lack of repunching on the 2 in the date is among the chief ways to distinguish true proofs, as here, from business strikes, some of which are extensively prooflike, but all circulation strikes show repunching on that digit. This near-Gem proof is well-contrasted with fields that easily "fade to black" when the coin is tilted under a light, complementing the frosty high points of the devices. The fields show a moderate orange-peel effect. Only 76 proofs were struck of the issue, and only 30 to 45 pieces are believed to have survived. Deep orange-gold color and abundant eye appeal prevail throughout. Population: 5 in 64 Cameo, 5 finer (11/19).
    Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 3/2013), lot 4207.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28AR, PCGS# 88046)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
