Description:
Incredible 1885 Quarter Eagle
PR67 Ultra Cameo
One of the Two finest Certified
1885 $2 1/2 PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. CAC. As expected, the 1885 proof Liberty Head quarter eagle, with a mintage of only 87 coins, is a scarce issue. Also, the sparse mintage of circulation strikes (800 pieces), adds pressure to the proofs from date collectors. Further, Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth (2006), write: "For some reason an unusual number of Proof 1885 quarter eagles entered circulation. There are quite a few impaired Proof examples known."
The frosted motifs of this Superb Gem Ultra Cameo yield an incredible gold-on-black contrast with the deeply mirrored fields. Additionally, an exacting strike leaves complete delineation on the design features, giving the coin even greater eye appeal. Close inspection with a loupe reveals no mentionable flaws on the immaculately preserved peach-gold surfaces. Census: 2 in 67 Ultra Cameo, 0 finer (7/08).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 2888, PCGS# 97911)
