Superb Cameo Proof 1886 Quarter Eagle1886 PR 66 Cameo NGC. A rare and important proof quarter eagle, of which only 88 pieces were struck. Curiously, this date was missing from both the Eliasberg and Amon Carter collections, and while that fact may not be especially significant in the overall scope of proof gold, it does point to the limited availability of this issue. Only three dozen or so examples are believed to exist and still be recognized as proofs. This coin has a startling clarity of detail and is very deeply mirrored. The devices are moderately frosted as well, giving the coin a pleasing cameo contrast. The reddish-golden surfaces show just a bit of light haziness on each side, certainly not enough to obscure the brightly reflective, problem-free nature of this important coin. (NGC ID# 2889, PCGS# 7912)
