1887 Gem Brilliant Proof. Bold cameo effect results from delicately frosted light gold reliefs hovering...1887 Gem Brilliant Proof. Bold cameo effect results from delicately frosted light gold reliefs hovering over glass-mirror fields of the boldest reflectivity. This coin's strike is flawless with all of the most intricate details fully defined, framed by high outer rims showing the utmost perfection. Here is one of the finest survivors of a Proof mintage of 1,043, a hard-to-equal coin produced just before the termination of Gold Dollar coinage.

Lot # 2023 Session 2
Hammer Price: $7,000.00
