Of the 60 Proofs struck, it is likely that fewer than 20 exist and many of these are, for some reason, cleaned or slightly impaired. I know of only one Gem Proof 1886 eagle (ex Heritage 9/03: 8176 at $60,375) and it is possible that the current example is the second finest known.

This is an original Gem with wonderful “black and white” contrast and nice natural medium orange-gold color. To the naked eye, it has the appearance of a PR65 and close examination shows just a few wispy hairlines on the obverse. The fields are reflective and free of imperfections and the appearance is really remarkable.

Only one Proof 1886 eagle has appeared at auction since September 2005 and this is an issue whose rarity is not widely known but which is clearly evident. I have only handled one other example of this date in Proof and that coin was nowhere close to this example in terms of quality and appearance.

If you collect Proof gold or if you are looking for one special With Motto Liberty Head eagle to use for type purposes, you have found your coin.

CAC has approved one in this grade with none finer for Deep Cameo/Ultra Cameo examples.
