Description:
Breathtaking 1894 Quarter Eagle, PR66 Ultra Cameo
1894 $2 1/2 PR66 Ultra Cameo NGC. The number of proofs typically struck in the latter part of the 19th century was minuscule, compared to the number that are typically struck in the early part of the 21st century. Obviously, at that time there were far fewer coin collectors than there are today. That would have been especially true of proof gold, since a quarter eagle piece such as this would have represented a substantial sum of money.
This stunning piece displays absolutely breathtaking contrast between the watery, "black" fields and the richly frosted yellow-gold devices. The design elements are reproduced with razor-sharp precision, and both sides of the coin are utterly pristine. Census: 1 in 66 Ultra Cameo, 0 finer with the (9/08). (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 288H, PCGS# 97920)
