    1877 Trade Dollar, PR64 Cameo
    Noticeably Contrasted

    1877 T$1 PR64 Cameo NGC. The proof mintage for 1877 was 510 pieces, and if the collector of this short but challenging series demands a fully struck example, acquisition of a proof is almost the only way to add one to a set. Business strike 1877s are invariably softly struck on the head of Liberty. This is a sharply defined piece with sparkling, deeply mirrored fields. The devices are heavily frosted and set up the always-popular cameo contrast against the fields. Light rose-golden patina surrounds a wide swath around the margins with a small, almost-brilliant center. Census: 14 in 64 Cameo, 8 finer (7/16).
    From the Dr. Bruce Mesara Collection.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27YN, PCGS# 87057)
