    Appealing 1886 Three Dollar, PR63 Cameo

    1886 $3 PR63 Cameo PCGS. CAC. The mintage of the 1886 three dollar gold was only 1,000 business strikes plus 142 proof coins, but savvy collectors and dealers of the day saw the proverbial writing on the wall, anticipating the series' end by squirreling away nice examples. Probably one-third of the proof mintage and one-sixth of business strikes survive today. This Select Cameo proof offers broad eye appeal. Orange-gold surfaces display the coveted black-on-gold appearance of Cameo gold when viewed at an angle. Trivial field contact, less than might be imagined, precludes an even finer grade. A lot of coin for the condition. Population: 7 in 63 Cameo, 10 finer (3/10).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28AV, PCGS# 88050)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
