Description

Cameo Proof 1889 Quarter Eagle, PR66

1889 $2 1/2 PR66 Cameo NGC. This glittering Cameo proof is an amazing specimen with brilliant yellow surfaces. Deeply mirrored fields frame the highly lustrous devices, providing exceptional aesthetic appeal. Both sides show the watery surface effect that is so often seen on proof gold coins. This is an earlier proof quarter eagle that is not often encountered so nice. The mintage of this issue was an incredibly low total of 48 pieces. Probably half of those coins exist, or perhaps less. The present day population is estimated in the range of 20 to 25 coins. Census: 6 in 66, 0 finer (6/07).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 288C, PCGS# 87915)
