Description

Ultra Cameo Gem Proof 1893 Quarter Eagle
Uncommonly Strong Contrast

1893 $2 1/2 PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC. Garrett and Guth (Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins) consider the 1893 quarter eagle a typical proof issue for its decade, writing that "the mintage for the 1893 Liberty Head quarter eagle in Proof is about average for the last few years, and the number of survivors is also about the same." The eye appeal of this Ultra Cameo Gem specimen, however, is far from ordinary. Thickly frosted devices offer near-flawless contrast with gleaming fields that are the palest yellow when turned to the light and the "black" of "black-and-gold" out of it. Stunning all-around eye appeal. Census: 7 in 65 Ultra Cameo, 10 finer (6/12).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 288G, PCGS# 97919)
