Description:
Nearly Perfect PR 69 Cameo 1900 Quarter Eagle
1900 $2 1/2 PR 69 Ultra Cameo NGC. "Perfection" is not a word that is used often when describing coins that are 101 years old. But we believe this piece comes as close to technical perfection as any proof gold coin we have ever seen. It is nothing short of phenomenal. Deep, watery proof mirrors in the fields, thickly frosted devices, hairline-free and defect-free. Words simply fail to convey the visual impression this coin makes when it is viewed in-person.
As an issue, the 1900 is relatively available. The mintage was 205 pieces, and it has been estimated that perhaps as many as 130 examples are still extant today. Survivors run the gamut from a barely recognizable PR 50 to this incredible piece. (NGC ID# 288P, PCGS# 97926)

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
