Matte Proof Gem 1912 Quarter Eagle1912 $2 1/2 PR65 NGC. The first half of the proof Indian quarter eagle series reflects more-or-less constant experimentation, with the final finish, a fine sandblast texture, not readied until 1912. Garrett and Guth call the 1912 "one of the scarcest of the Proof issues; it is nearly tied in overall rarity with the 1913 and 1915 Proofs according to the population data." This is a particularly charming example with rich orange-gold color and delightfully faceted surfaces. Pleasingly preserved surfaces show no singularly obvious defects, though a few reddish color variations are noted at the upper reverse. Census: 8 in 65, 34 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 289L, PCGS# 7961)
