    1878 Trade Dollar, PR66+ Deep Cameo
    Sole Finest at PCGS

    1878 T$1 PR66+ Deep Cameo PCGS. A whisper of almond-gold toning exists on the rims and amid the thick, silver-white frost on Liberty's portrait, a mere reminder of the absolute originality of the mostly brilliant surfaces of this radiant proof Trade dollar. The fields are incredibly deep-mirrored and unimpeded by any distractions. The devices are razor sharp from the stars and legends to the chiseled central motifs.

    Just 900 proofs were struck of the issue, and no business strikes. Some of the proofs were distributed in 1879 at face value (217 pieces, according to the research by R.W. Julian). This is almost certainly the finest Deep Cameo Proof Trade dollar known today as verified by the PCGS Plus designation. NGC has seen one PR66 Ultra Cameo example and none finer in Ultra Cameo. Population: 1 in 66 (1 in 66+) Deep Cameo, 0 finer (6/14).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 27YP, PCGS# 97058)

    Weight: 27.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
