1884 Gold Dollar PR66 PCGS HW Bass Collection
1884 G$1 PR66 PCGS. JD-1, R.4. Ex: H.W. Bass, Jr. Collection. This piece represents the usual variety for proof 1884 gold dollars, with bold repunching on the date. The Mint struck 1,006 proof gold dollars in 1884, although likely fewer than 200 pieces survive in all grades. The issue is notably rare as fine as PR66, the grade of the present coin. This piece, formerly in the Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection, displays a sharp strike and beautifully mirrored fields, with modest, undesignated field-device contrast. Rich orange-gold color adorns each side. Eye appeal is excellent. Population: 9 in 66, 5 finer (11/22).
