    Exceptional 1881 Trade Dollar PR65 Cameo

    1881 T$1 PR65 Cameo PCGS. This year saw a limited proof-only mintage of 960 Trade dollars. The currently offered Gem is exceptional in several respects. First of all, it is one of the relatively small number of survivors which exhibit notable Cameo contrast. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, it exhibits uniformly sharp striking details, despite David Bowers' assertion that most proofs of this issue were poorly produced. Essentially hairline-free and contact-free, the piece shows some cloudiness in the fields. The frosted devices reveal a light golden cast. Population: 17 in 65 Cameo, 9 finer (9/06).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27YT, PCGS# 87061)

    Weight: 27.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
