Description

Choice Cameo Proof 1887 Two and a Half

1887 $2 1/2 PR64 Cameo PCGS. CAC. A scant 122 proof quarter eagles were issued in 1887. Those are distinguished from the 6,160 business strikes by the high placement of the date, which nearly touches the bust. In addition, this lot features smooth mirrored fields and razor-sharp definition throughout the motifs, obtainable only on proof impressions. The peach-gold fields contrast with the luminous green-gold legends and devices. Careful rotation reveals a few delicate hairlines on the left obverse field. Proofs of this date typically appear at auction only once or twice per year at Heritage. Population: 3 in 64 Cameo, 1 finer as Cameo, 6 finer as Deep Cameo (2/13).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 288A, PCGS# 87913)
