Description:
1897 Choice Ultra Cameo Proof Twenty Dollar
1897 $20 PR64 Ultra Cameo NGC. Boldly cameoed, the surfaces are bathed in deeply set orange-gold patina. Suggestions of green-gold color are also evident at certain angles. The normal Choice proof Double Eagle would reveal at least a few mentionable surface distractions, but this coin is free of any singularly bothersome blemishes. In fact, the eye appeal alone is strong enough to warrant consideration at the Gem grade level. As a future pedigree identifier, one tiny mark is noted in the right obverse field between Liberty's lower hair curls and star 13. Mint records indicate that 86 proof Double Eagles were delivered in 1897, and survivors are much rarer than those of the previous 1896 issue (128 proofs produced).
From The Greenwich Collection, Part Two.(#99113) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 26EJ, PCGS# 99113)
