Cert #88782 6600684

Coin Number 52

This is one of only three or four Proofs known, and likely the finest of that select group. The surfaces are toned with rich hazy copper gold hues, while the central devices are deeply frosted and satiny. The surfaces are outstanding, and the contrast is incredible on this early Proof gold eagle. These early Proof gold coins are truly the caviar of the rare coin market, with tiny mintages and incredible eye appeal, their desirability never wanes. Here is one of the finest examples available. Of the mintage noted, two of these are impounded in museums. This gold rarity has only come up for sale a few times in the last century.
