Description

1896 Quarter Eagle, PR65 Cameo
Splendid Cameo Quality

1896 $2 1/2 PR65 Cameo NGC. CAC. The mintage of proof quarter eagles in 1896 totaled 132 pieces, an average number for the series, but infinitesimal in absolute terms. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth estimate only 65-80 examples survive today in all grades. Coins in Gem condition, with the coveted Cameo designation are certainly rare, as NGC has certified only 10 specimens in PR65 Cameo, with 12 finer (6/10).
The present coin possesses ultra-reflective, greenish-gold fields and crisply-defined, frosty devices. The field-device contrast is dramatic. A few minor hairlines are detectable with the aid of a glass, but they do not detract from the remarkable visual appeal.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 4H4A, PCGS# 87922)
