Peerless 1901 Quarter Eagle PR67 Cameo1901 $2 1/2 PR67 Cameo PCGS. Of the 223 proofs issued 100 years ago, it is estimated that no more than half that number are extant today in all grades. This is one of the very few cameo proofs that are known from this year as the Mint began to shift its emphasis to the no-contrast method of proofing beginning in this year. We conclude this must be one of the first pieces struck from the proof dies, and therefore is one of the few pieces to show any appreciable cameo contrast. The surfaces are immaculate and close examination reveals a slight orange-peel effect in the fields along with blushes of carmine-rose patina on the highpoints. Importantly, this is the only similarly certified Cameo by PCGS, with NGC having graded four as PR67 Cameo and two finer (7/04).(#87927) (Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 288R, PCGS# 87927)
