Description

Glorious Gem Proof 1888 with Deep Cameo Contrast
Deeply reflective, finely textured fields form a splendid backdrop to satiny devices on both sides of this stunning Gem. Free of grade limiting blemishes with dominant medium gold color, a blush of iridescent orange-rose further adorns the obverse portrait. Although the 1888 Proof issue has the highest number struck for the entire Three-dollar gold series at 291 pieces, these are still quite elusive. Deep Cameo examples are exceptionally rare. To date, PCGS in their Population Report record only 3 coins that qualify at this most desirable contrast level. Most issues of Proofs from this series did not produce coins that qualify for the Deep Cameo contrast. The fields show strong orange peel as expected, and the surfaces are exceptional and easily earn the Gem level of preservation. The bold visual appeal is awe inspiring on this coin, and it would make a bold addition to any advanced collection.
Estimate: $0.00 - $0.00
PCGS# 98052.
PCGS Population: 1; 1 finer (Proof-66 Deep Cameo) within the designation.
