1886 $3 Gold. PCGS graded Proof 66 Cameo. Lovely rich golden colors. One of the finest graded 1886 Proof $3 gold pieces, and the only Proof 66 by PCGS. No doubt one of the very finest known, the current price guides should be tossed aside when considering your bids on this Proof 66. The surfaces are pristine, without the usual signs of handling or annoying hairlines that diminish the value; only close examination will find even faint evidence of these. Beautiful deep warm orange gold in color, with perfectly struck devices and each is fully frosted, providing spectacular cameo qualities. Among the finest ever graded. PCGS serial number 21478938. Only 142 proofs struck. Pop 1; none finer at PCGS. (PCGS # 88050) .
Estimated Value $30,000 - 35,000.

Realized $32,200
