1888 $3 Gold. PCGS graded Proof 63 Cameo. A blazing untoned proof. Only 291 Proofs struck. It is thought that a portion of the Proof mintage this year was later melted after the Mint failed to find buyers. More than a little frosted for the issue, as seen here, the natural gold cameo of the devices are showy against the smooth mirror reflection that is nearly free of hairlines. As we see it, when it comes to the centers of the hair and leaves in the wreath, the strike is sharp, and well defined in all areas. Pop 7; 10 finer; 1 in 64; 5 in 65; 4 in 66. (PCGS # 88052) .
Estimated Value $7,500 - 8,000.

 
Realized $10,350
