    Gem Proof 1883 Three Dollar With Deep Cameo Surfaces

    1883 $3 PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. A superior example of this rare proof three dollar gold coin. Both business strikes and proofs are considerable rarities with only 900 and 89 pieces produced respectively of each. This is a stunning cameo proof with illimitable depth of mirrored reflectivity in the fields. The mint frost on the devices is considerable and starkly sets the devices against the black pools of reflectivity in the fields. The surfaces are essentially defect-free, close examination with a glass only reveals a stray hairline here and there. The fields have the orange-peel effect often seen on this date and others from the 1880s, yielding even more visual interest to this significant rarity. Population: 3 in 65 Deep Cameo, 8 finer (4/06).(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 28AS, PCGS# 98047)

    Weight: 5.02 grams
