Lot Description
1881 $3 PR66 Cameo NGC. The 1881 three dollar gold issue boasts a limited mintage of 500 business strikes and 54 proofs. This beautiful Premium Gem offers needle-sharp design details and mildly reflective fields. A lovely cameo effect is evident on both obverse and reverse. The surfaces exhibit dominant orange-gold coloration intermingled with small amounts of ice-blue toning, mainly on the portrait. There are no bothersome contact marks, but some minor haziness is noted. Certainly one of the more important survivors of this low mintage issue. Census: 4 in 66 Cameo, 0 finer (11/06).
