Description:
Spectacular 1888 Quarter Eagle
PR64 Deep Cameo
1888 $2 1/2 PR64 Deep Cameo PCGS. The 1888 proof mintage was only 97 coins, and approximately half of that number is believed to still exist today. There are no obvious die characteristics to distinguish proofs from business strikes, but when they have the appearance of the present piece there is no question about the proof status.
The fields are deeply mirrored with a wavy appearance, while the design elements are nicely frosted. Both sides are rich lemon-yellow with splashes of subtle orange toning. A few faint hairlines and tiny contact marks limit the grade. Population: 1 in 64 Deep Cameo, 1 finer (6/09).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 288B, PCGS# 97914)
