Pristine 1897 Quarter Eagle, PR66 Deep Cameo

1897 $2 1/2 PR66 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. The quarter eagle mintages of the late 19th century provide a happy exception to the extreme elusiveness of proof gold in general, due to their larger mintages in the 100 to 200-plus range. Clearly more collectors of the time were able to afford a proof example than of the larger denominations, and the greater productions ensured that some pristine pieces such as the present coin would survive to this day. The surfaces are bright yellow-gold, giving the viewer a stark contrast between the thickly frosted devices and the profoundly mirrored fields. A few tiny lint marks were struck into the obverse field (strong magnification is required), but there are no other noticeable or mentionable surface blemishes on this extraordinary proof quarter eagle. Population: 4 in 66 Deep Cameo, 2 finer (12/08). (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 288L, PCGS# 97923)
