Gem 1913 Quarter Eagle
Prized Sandblast Proof

1913 $2 1/2 PR65 NGC. CAC. Because collectors rejected the matte proof finish used on proof quarter eagles since 1908, the Philadelphia Mint tried a modified, sandblast finish in 1912 and 1913. Unfortunately, the sandblast proofs were equally unpopular. Many of the 165 proof quarter eagles minted in 1913 went unsold, and were destroyed the following year. Today, these rare sandblast proofs are prized by collectors, and record prices attend most offerings. Significant auction appearances include the NGC PR67 specimen in lot 1916 of the Baltimore Signature Auction (Heritage, 7/2008), which realized $37,375.
This coin displays the razor-sharp strike expected from a sandblast proof issue, along with the finely-grained texture and subtle, sparkling luster characteristic of this finish. The flawless surfaces are orange-gold, with hints of rose. Census: 11 in 65, 40 finer (11/10).
From The Henry Miller Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 289M, PCGS# 7962)
