Gem Cameo Proof 1883 Quarter Eagle

1883 PR 65 Cameo NGC. Only 82 proof quarter eagles were struck in this year, and of that number it has been estimated that 28 to 32 pieces exist today in all grades. Many prooflike business strikes are also known, and in the past they have been confused with proofs, but there is no mistaking the proof status of this gem. The fields are deeply mirrored and go "black" against the heavily frosted devices, which yields a pronounced cameo effect. The surfaces are virtually perfect--the only visual distractions are a few shallow, widely scattered hairlines and two alloy spots on the reverse. Close inspection also reveals light die striations in the fields, which are mint produced and responsible for the incredible depth of mirrored reflectivity--this is probably common to all proofs of this date as we have noted it on a previously offered proof 1883. (NGC ID# 2886, PCGS# 7909)
