Description

Gem Cameo Proof 1885 Quarter Eagle

1885 $2 1/2 PR65 Cameo NGC. CAC. Outstanding quality and contrast. The obverse displays beautifully with a generously frosted, boldly impressed portrait and surrounding fields that gleam yellow-gold through a delicate layer of patina. The reverse has a copper spot overlapping the left (facing) wing on the eagle, a testament to the coin's originality. A single wispy flaw travels off Liberty's chin, but this does not imperil the impressive grade. While the proof issue's mintage of 87 pieces was the highest for a proof quarter eagle since 1861, the associated business strike mintage of only 800 coins ensures that any 1885-dated quarter eagle is in high demand.
From The Henry Miller Collection.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 2888, PCGS# 87911)
