1889 $1 Gold Indian. PCGS graded Proof 64. Lovely golden toning on both sides. Smooth, rolling-fresh finish, mellowed over time as when first extracted from its protective storage and sent off to be graded and encapsulated by PCGS; awash in originality. It is difficult to find such choiceness in a Proof gold dollar nowadays. Many have disappeared into collections. It is fair to report, too, that the devices were delivered a blow by the dies with the primary energy required to impart the design to the outer areas as well as enough vigor to impart clear-cut centers. Only the word LIBERTY is soft, and this is mainly attributed to too-energetic die polishing by the Mint's die department. A very attractive specimen. Only 1,779 Proofs struck (PCGS # 7639) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,500.

Realized $5,290
