Description 1885 G$1 MS66 NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Following suit with the several issues immediately preceding, the 1885 was produced in minimal quantities (only 11,105 pieces). While many examples were saved, and thus readily available in most grades, the 1885 is actually one of the more challenging late-series issues for high Mint State examples. Exhibiting frosty soft green-gold luster and traces of semiprooflike mirroring in the fields, this Premium Gem offers the collector a highly appealing, upper-end example. The devices are well brought up, and, as suggested by the grade, the preservation is excellent. Census: 55 in 66 (1 in 66+, 1 in 66 S), 38 finer (8/14). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $8.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1762.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
