Description

1897 Liberty Quarter Eagle, PR67+
Stunning Ultra Cameo Example

1897 $2 1/2 PR67+ Ultra Cameo NGC. The production of proof quarter eagles increased incrementally in 1897 to 136 pieces. Experts agree only a little more than half that number survive today in all grades.

The art of classical proof coinage had reached its zenith by 1897, and the coins produced in that time period rival anything the Mint can produce today in terms of technical quality and eye appeal. This magnificent Superb Gem displays razor-sharp definition on all design elements, and the richly frosted devices contrast profoundly with the deeply mirrored fields. The light yellow-gold surfaces show no mentionable signs of contact and eye appeal is terrific.
Census: 3 in 67 Ultra Cameo, 7 finer (3/13).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 288L, PCGS# 97923)
