Description:
Premium Gem Ultra Cameo Proof 1897 Quarter Eagle
1897 $2 1/2 PR66 Ultra Cameo NGC. The 1897 is a scarce, later issue in the Liberty quarter eagle series. Only 136 proofs were originally struck and it is reliably estimated that today only 45-50 pieces remain in all grades. This is one of the finest examples known. The fields are very deeply mirrored and essentially hairline-free. The devices are heavily frosted, indicating an early striking, and provide a stark cameo contrast against the "blackness" seen in the fields. Virtually perfect with the only mentionable defects being a couple of tiny planchet flakes in the fields. Outstanding technical quality and eye appeal. Population: 5 in 66, 7 finer (11/03).
From a 10-Piece 1897 Proof Set. (#97923) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 288L, PCGS# 97923)
