Description

Conditionally Scarce 1885 Quarter Eagle, PR64 Cameo

1885 $2 1/2 PR64 Cameo NGC. According to the Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins, 1795-1933 (Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth, 2006): "The Proof 1885 Liberty Head quarter eagle is a scarce issue, as would be expected for a coin with mintage of only 87 coins. There is also added date pressure due to the rarity of the circulation strikes for the year. For some reason an unusual number of Proof 1885 quarter eagles entered circulation."
This lovely near-Gem is obviously not one of those pieces that may have circulated, however briefly. The surfaces are well preserved, and there are only a few of the most trivial hairlines (on the right side of the reverse), and a faint degree of cloudiness in the fields, to prevent a finer grade assessment. Sharply struck with noteworthy field-to-device contrast on both sides. Census: 2 in 64 Cameo, 7 finer (9/08). (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 2888, PCGS# 87911)
