Description:
Finely Textured 1912 Proof Quarter Eagle, PR66
1912 $2 1/2 PR66 PCGS. Both sides of this splendid piece have a nearly infinite number of tiny sparkling facets that give the matte proof gold coins their unique look. The essentially perfect surfaces have a lovely lemon-yellow appearance with a few minute dark spots. Of all the matte proof gold, this issue is a favorite of Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth, who write: "The 1912 Indian Head quarter eagles show a fine sandblast texture, which reflects the light with reflective microscopic facets. ... Comparing the various proofs and finishes requires several coins, at least one of each date, as the Philadelphia Mint seems to have changed the exact finish quality and surface texture nearly every year these proofs were issued. Each style is beautiful in its own right, but the 1912 issue stands out as one of the more reflective and attractive coins in this finish."(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 289L, PCGS# 7961)
