Prior to 1858, the U.S. Mint had no organized program for selling proof sets to collectors, and so production of proofs was small and erratic. This held true especially for gold coins; Garrett and Guth state of the proof 1857 gold dollar: “The mintage is unknown, but it may be somewhere in the 15 to 18 coin range. There are probably about 10 coins still remaining.” On the other hand, PCGS estimates a mintage of approximately a dozen pieces. We’re aware of only three Proof exampled having been auctioned in the past ten years and only one of them was a Deep Cameo/Ultra Cameo. In hand, this coin exhibits loads of eye-appeal and richly frosted devices, offset beautifully by deeply reflective fields.
