Description:

Sharp, Elusive 1885 Quarter Eagle
PR63 Cameo
1885 $2 1/2 PR63 Cameo NGC. CAC. This quarter eagle issue is even rarer in unimpaired proof grades than its mintage of 87 pieces would indicate. Akers' series reference notes that many proofs are impaired by circulation. This Select Cameo example offers pronounced orange-peel texture in the fields, with bright yellow-gold color predominating. The reflective fields are deeply mirrored with frosted devices. While a few hairlines preclude an even finer grade, they are so faint they appear only with a magnifier. A few light contact marks occur in the obverse fields, but this is nonetheless a sharp-looking example for the grade. Census: 2 in 63 Cameo, 11 finer (3/10).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 2888, PCGS# 87911)
