Description

Very Scarce PR64 Cameo 1881 Quarter Eagle

1881 $2 1/2 PR64 Cameo NGC. The 1881 quarter eagle is a rare issue in both proof and business strike format with only 51 proofs and 640 business strikes produced. A reliable estimate of the number of proof survivors is somewhere in the neighborhood of 24-28 pieces. This piece has hazy surfaces on each side, but the deeply reflective mirrors shine brightly on each side with considerable mint frost on the devices that gives the coin a noticeable cameo effect. As one might infer from the grade, this piece is lightly hairlined, no doubt from the "conserving" process done to many of the coins in King Farouk's collection. Population: 1 in 64, 7 finer (11/03).
Ex: Palace Collection (Sotheby's, 2/54); sold to Dr. Howard; a small insert accompanies that is signed by Abe Kosoff attesting to this coin's provenance. (#87907) (Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 3XP2, PCGS# 87907)

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
