Description:

1866 Quarter Eagle, PR64
Low-Mintage Date, Rarely Offered
1866 $2 1/2 PR64 PCGS. The mintage of 30 pieces suggests how rare this date is as a proof. But it is even rarer than one would imagine; Garrett and Guth suggest some were melted as unsold at year's end. It seems that this date has not been offered at public auction as a non-Cameo since 2000. A cluster of PR64 appearances in 1999 and 2000 suggest the same coin (probably the Trompeter specimen) was offered multiple times until it found a home. This is not the Trompeter coin. One has to wonder why this coin is not in a Cameo holder since the contrast is so profound between the deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted devices. This piece is identifiable by a patch of granularity next to star 2. The devices on the reverse have a hazy outline.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 287L, PCGS# 7892)
