    Description

    Ultra Cameo PR64 1888 Three Dollar
    Stunning Contrast and Eye Appeal

    1888 $3 PR64 Ultra Cameo NGC. The 1888 sports the highest proof mintage of any three dollar gold coin (291 pieces). Many examples must have been saved, as NGC and PCGS have seen about 230 coins, making the issue extremely popular among proof type collectors.
    The near-Gem Ultra Cameo specimen in the current lot stands out among surviving examples in that it is the only three dollar piece given this designation by NGC (1/12). Both sides display pronounced gold-black contrast and attractive peach-gold patination. The design elements are exactingly struck, further adding to the coin's pleasing eye appeal. Light handling marks preclude a higher numerical grade.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 28AX, PCGS# 98052)
