Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint only struck 80 proof gold eagles in 1887. Of those, it is thought that perhaps a quarter to third still exist. NGC has only graded a total of 15 examples. The majority of those have at least a cameo contrast, and four have even received the ultra cameo designation. (10/2016)
