*NEW* Cert. 82476104 This coin is the Mint State twin of the 1897 Deep Cameo Proof above. Brilliant and fully GEM, this beauty boasts a ring of golden and bright blue circling the peripheries of both sides.
*SOLD* NEW* A gorgeous Proof that shows considerable CAMEO devices on both sides contrasting deep, flawless, black fields. Medium cameo on the obverse and no cameo on the sun, so PCGS will not designate this coin “CAMEO”, But strong cameo overall on the reverse devices. Only two Cameo’s of the date have been certified at PCGS, one PR64 CAM and One PR65 CAM. Although none exist, CU Price Guide shows a value of $8500 in PR66 CAMEO and leaves the PR67 CAMEO unvalued. Based on these numbers, this just miss PR67 CAMEO is real value and a joy to behold.
