1886 $3 Gold. PCGS graded Proof 65 Cameo. Lovely golden toning. Only 142 proofs minted. One of the most eye-catching Cameo Proofs of this date we have had the pleasure to offer. No doubt one of the very finest known, the current Population Report below lays out the facts. The surfaces are nearly pristine, without the usual signs of handling or annoying hairlines that diminish the value. What's more close examination will find only faint evidence of these. Beautiful orange gold in color, with perfectly struck devices and each is fully frosted, providing spectacular cameo qualities. Since only 142 Proofs were struck, and survival hit or miss, this coin is clearly one of the very best. Pop 5; 1 in 66 Cameo. (PCGS # 88050) .
Estimated Value $24,000 - 26,000.

Realized $22,080
