Lovely PR66 Ultra Cameo 1895 Quarter Eagle1895 $2 1/2 PR66 Ultra Cameo NGC. Gorgeous, deep black-on-gold contrast is evident on each side of this Premium Gem proof example. The Breen proof Encyclopedia comments that the same die--identifiable by a minute point down from the lower point of the bun, which the present coin shows as a small round dot in the field--was apparently used on all 119 recorded proofs of this issue and some of the paltry 6,000 business strikes produced. This lovely, near-pristine piece shows only a couple of minuscule contact points under magnification that are completely consistent with the PR66 grade. Census: 6 in 66 Ultra Cameo, 5 finer (7/06)..
Ex: Gibson-Groves (Stack's, 11/74), lot 514; Stack's, 3/82, lot 1074.
