1875 $5 PCGS Proof 65 CAM

The Magic Year of Rarities!

1875 was a Magic Year of Rarities as many under-appreciated rarities were produced in the yearfor both circulation and proof strikes. From a mintage of just 20 pieces, probably fewer than 6-7 examples are known. This piece exhibits beautiful Cameo mirrors with the brightest of yellow-gold surfaces. Overall this piece is truly a quality example of an underrated, great coin! Only a single example (Proof 65 Deep Cameo) is graded finer.
