||1883 G$1 MS67 NGC. CAC. As with many examples from this low-mintage issue (only 10,800 pieces struck), this 1883 gold dollar exhibits ample semiprooflike mirroring in the fields, a characteristic imparted by fresh, highly polished dies. The immense eye appeal and similarity of many of these coins to proofs of the period has caused them to be offered as such in the past. This high-end type coin is exceptional in terms of both manufacture and preservation. Apricot and green-gold hues abound on each side, and sharp motifs further enhance the eye appeal. NGC has seen 11 numerically finer submissions (8/14). Ex: Numismatic Gallery; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
