1886 $3 Gold. NGC graded Proof 63 Cameo. Some scatter3ed hairlines in the unprotected fields. A touch of rose color tone rests in the protected areas. Only 142 proofs made. Despite a few crisscrossing hairlines in the fields, this is a dynamic Choice Proof $3 displaying excellent contrast and sharp design details. Both sides are warm orange gold with fully frosted devices and contrast. In addition to the limited quantity of Proofs, a meager business strike mintage was also released for 1886. Possibly as many as twice the number of collectors exist for the few Proofs of this date that can be supplied in any one year, although the actual number may be even greater! Collectors really should try to buy a representative 19th century gold Proof like this. It would appeal to you. There is nothing like them in all of American numismatics. Pop 11; 53 finer. Includes plenty of resubmissions. (PCGS # 88050) .
Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000.

Realized $10,925
