    1883 Three Dollar Gold, PR62 Cameo
    One of 89 Proofs Struck

    1883 $3 PR62 Cameo NGC. While the three dollar gold issue never reached the proof-versus-business strike absurdity of the three cent nickels, where several dates have proof mintages larger than the number of circulation coins struck, there are several cases where proofs make up a substantial minority of the year's total output. The recorded strikings for the 1883 three dollar, for instance, are 89 proofs against just 900 business strikes. This PR62 Cameo representative has clear contrast and a few copper spots near the rims of the yellow-gold surfaces. Substantially hairlined in the fields, yet pleasing at arm's length. Census: 1 in 62 Cameo, 29 finer (6/13).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28AS, PCGS# 88047)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
