    1886 Three Dollar, PR65 Ultra Cameo
    Profoundly Contrasted and Fully Struck

    1886 $3 PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC. This splendid Gem Ultra Cameo proof 1886 three dollar gold is one of 142 pieces struck during the series' waning years, which would end in 1889. This complements a circulation-strike coinage of only 1,000 pieces, but both formats were saved in larger quantities later in the series than for the earlier issues. It is difficult to imagine an example with deeper field-device contrast than the present piece, which shows a profound gold-on-black contrast straight-on to the viewer. The surfaces are orange-gold with excellent luster and show a definite orange-peel effect, and they appear virtually unmarked, an impression that examination under a loupe merely serves to confirm. Census: 3 in 65 Ultra Cameo, 4 finer including a 66 Ultra Cameo example (11/12).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28AV, PCGS# 98050)
