Description:
Outstanding 1898 Quarter Eagle
1898 $2 1/2 PR64 Deep Cameo PCGS. Just 165 quarter eagle proofs were coined in 1898, with about 80 or so thought to exist today. This PR64 Deep Cameo specimen displays outstanding motif-field contrast, which takes on a gold-on-black appearance at all angles. The design elements are exquisitely brought up, with no areas revealing hints of softness. A few wispy handling marks are all that keeps this piece from attaining an even higher grade. This is a truly awe-inspiring coin that is sure to draw the interest of connoisseurs of gold coinage. Population: 2 in 64 Deep Cameo, 9 finer (11/06).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 288M, PCGS# 97924)
