Description:
1881 Quarter Eagle, PR64 Deep Cameo
Only 51 Proofs Produced
1881 $2 1/2 PR64 Deep Cameo PCGS. The 1881 has the lowest business-strike mintage, only 640 pieces, which puts great pressure on proof examples of the issue as well. As a proof, the issue had a remarkably low production of only 51 pieces. Only 43 proof certification events have been recorded at both major services, giving credence to the estimate by Garrett-Guth of "20 or so" surviving examples in proof format. The vast majority of the proofs known are either non-Cameo or Cameo.

It is surprising for an issue with such a limited mintage that only 16 pieces have been certified with Deep Cameo contrast by both services combined. This example has deep, even reddish-gold surfaces over each side. A few grade-limiting contact marks appear on Liberty's face and in the right obverse field. Population: 3 in 64 Deep Cameo, 4 finer (1/14).
