Description

Starkly Contrasted Cameo Proof 1898 Double Eagle

1898 $20 PR64 Cameo PCGS. The 1898 is one of the more available proof Double Eagles struck prior to 1900. This is not to say that this issue is common, as the Mint produced only 75 proofs this year, no more than 30 of which are believed extant. An exquisite specimen, the present representative has the eye appeal of a Gem. The devices are richly frosted, a feature that contrasts boldly with the deeply mirrored fields. There are no distracting blemishes in the prime focal areas, only a few tiny ticks in the obverse field. Orange-gold in color with eye appeal to spare. (NGC ID# 26EK, PCGS# 89114)
