Description

Singular PR66 Cameo 1889 Quarter Eagle

1889 $2 1/2 PR66 Cameo PCGS. The official 48-coin mintage for the proof 1889 quarter eagle was the lowest figure since 1880, and the stated production would never dip so low again until proof strikings ceased in 1916. This is the sole finest Cameo specimen of the 1889 in the PCGS Population Report (6/10), making it an important example of a similarly important issue. The contrast between the glassy sun-yellow mirrors and the paler yellow-frost of the devices is undeniable. Exactingly struck and carefully preserved, a memorable representative for the classic proof gold connoisseur.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 288C, PCGS# 87915)
