    1880 Trade Dollar, PR68 Cameo
    White on Black Proof Type Coin

    1880 T$1 PR68 Cameo NGC. Proof-only Trade dollars were struck annually between 1878 and 1885. The 1880 has the largest proof mintage of the series, and the date is often selected to represent the Trade dollar within proof type collections. Specimens are usually offered in PR61 to PR66 grades. At the PR68 level, the 1880 is extremely rare, with just 11 pieces certified by NGC (9/19), eight as PR68 Cameo, two as PR68★ Cameo, and one as PR68 Ultra Cameo. None have been graded PR69 or PR70 by either leading service. The present pristine piece offers glassy fields and frosty motifs. The strike is sharp, and the surfaces are brilliant save for a tiny spot near the final A in AMERICA. Concentric lathe lines (as made) are faintly evident on the central obverse field.(Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27YS, PCGS# 87060)

    Weight: 27.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
