1882 $1 Gold Indian. PCGS graded Proof 65 Cameo. Lovely toning. Only 125 proofs struck. Pop 2; 1 in 66 Cam. From stem to stern (to borrow an old sailing metaphor) this golden beauty sails off into the sunset. A marvelously colored gem, it has impressive mint brilliance over spotless warm orange toned surfaces. A great deal of discussion often surrounds a coin's strike. This has excellent detail with no sign of weakness to the main device. A gem Proof with a weak strike is absolutely no good to you, the careful bidder. It is a small thing to say, but this gorgeous 1882 Proof should, without too much trouble, attract a lot of attention and then strong bids (PCGS # 87632) .
Estimated Value $7,000 - 8,000.

Realized $8,338
