    Gem Cameo Proof 1886 Three Dollar

    1886 $3 PR65 Cameo PCGS. As a date, the proof 1886 is a rather unexceptional issue in a series filled with extraordinarily rare, low mintage dates. The Philadelphia Mint issued 142 proofs, and it has been estimated that perhaps as many as 40-45 pieces may still exist. However, such a small number of survivors only qualifies the 1886 proof as a "common" date in the Three Dollar series. However, the overall appearance of this coin is absolutely stunning. The surfaces are virtually without blemishes or imperfections of any kind. The fields show an unfathomable depth of mirrored reflectivity, setting up a "black" background for the heavy mint frost on the devices. An exquisite cameoed proof of unimprovable quality. Population: 5 in 65 Cameo, 1 finer (6/05).(#88050)(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28AV, PCGS# 88050)
