    1884 Three Dollar, PR64 Deep Cameo
    Rare in Deep Cameo

    1884 $3 PR64 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. Proof three dollar gold pieces of 1884 saw a mintage of 106 coins, which along with that of 1883 represents a considerable increase from previous years, reflecting elevated collector demand. Production of three dollar proofs had been considerably less than 100 pieces since 1860 and 1861, when mintages were 119 and 113, respectively. David Bowers (2005) estimates 50 to 65 proofs known, while the PCGS website puts the figure at 65 to 75 pieces. Regardless of which estimate is correct, the number of Cameo examples is small. PCGS has graded fewer than 20 with this format, a mere six of which rate Deep Cameo, including the present near-Gem offering. The fields are predictably deeply reflective on this Deep Cameo proof, and they show a slight orange-peel texture. There are no obvious flaws on this light reddish-gold specimen.
