    Description

    1882 Three Dollar, PR64 Cameo
    Sharply Contrasted Example

    1882 $3 PR64 Cameo PCGS. The lack of repunching on the 2 in the date is among the chief ways to distinguish the true proofs, as here, from the 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, although more business strikes survive than the mintage of 1,500 pieces might suggest. Moderate orange-gold color and abundant eye appeal prevail throughout. Population: 6 in 64 (1 in 64+) Cameo, 3 finer (2/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28AR, PCGS# 88046)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
