Lot 1242

1884 $3 Gold. PCGS graded Proof 64 Deep Cameo. A gorgeous golden-orange brilliant Proof example with deeply frosted devices as recognized by PCGS and noted on the holder. One of a pair of glowing Proof 64 examples of this date consigned to a sale by our consignor. Across most grades, the 1884 is relatively available in Proof format, though collector demand regularly trumps supply. That is not to say a coin of this caliber is common. Not by any means. It is genuinely rare, with only a small number graded by the two chief grading services.

This is a particularly splendid specimen, the present coin. Its reflective mirrored fields are delicately tinted with hints of color, the devices nicely frosted; impressed devices are bold. Excellent contrast conveyed by these opposing qualities for a Proof, and pleasing beyond reproach, thereby desirable as such. Only 106 struck. Pop 2; 1 in 65 DCAM, 1 in 66 DCAM, 1 in 67 DCAM (PCGS # 98048) .
Estimated Value $20,000 - 22,000.
