1859. PCGS graded Proof 67 Cameo. A frosty and partially brilliant portrait of Liberty sits amid a reflective field that displays wisps of rich gold, crimson, russet, and turquoise-blue iridescence that deepens toward the rim. The reverse is a study in lilac-gray and gunmetal-blue that is displayed in a mottled fashion. Random die artifacts are noted near the tips of most stars. The Guide Book lists a proof mintage for the date of 800 pieces, while Breen's Encyclopedia (1988) notes: "Many of the Proofs were melted as unsold, or spent." An exceptional specimen. Pop 3; none finer at PCGS. (PCGS # 84748) .
Estimated Value $20,000 - 22,000.
