Description

Ultra Cameo Gem Proof 1886 Quarter Eagle

1886 $2 1/2 PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC. A rarity in the proof gold series, from a mintage of just 88 coins, with only about 30 to 40 examples still existing today. Only another 4,000 business strikes were struck during the year, thus 1886 is actually an important quarter eagle rarity in any production format. This piece is an amazing Gem with exceptional contrast between the highly lustrous devices and the deeply mirrored yellow-gold fields. The surfaces are nearly flawless and present the usual watery appearance that is common to all proof gold coins of this era. Both sides are fully brilliant and present exceptional eye appeal. Census: 5 in 65, 4 finer (3/07).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 2889, PCGS# 97912)
