Description

1885 PR64 Cameo Quarter Eagle
Borderline Ultra Cameo

1885 $2 1/2 PR64 Cameo NGC. CAC. Only 87 proof quarter eagles were struck in 1885, and predictably this is a rare issue. The certification services have graded 39 coins as non-Cameo, Cameo, and Deep/Ultra Cameo. The majority of these are grouped in the non-Cameo and Cameo categories; in fact, each of these designations has 16 coins certified. This total in all designations probably represents no more than 30 individual coins once resubmissions are factored out, a lower-than-normal survival rate for late 19th century proof gold. This piece shows illimitable depth of mirroring in the "black" fields with strong, frosted devices. The only contact marks of any note are a small cluster in the field above the head of the eagle. Census: 2 in 64 Cameo, 7 finer (6/12).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 2888, PCGS# 87911)
