    Memorable 1898 Four-Coin Gold Proof Set, Superb Cameos

    An incredibly preserved set of 1899 proof gold coinage, Quarter Eagle through Double Eagle, as follows:

    Quarter Eagle PR68 Deep Cameo NGC. A seemingly flawless proof specimen with just a slightest blush of reddish patina at the margins. The contrast on this piece, like all four coins offered here, is simply outstanding. Proof mintage of 150 pieces. Population: 5 in 68 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (4/04).

    Half Eagle PR68 Deep Cameo NGC. Intensely reflective, yellow-gold surfaces possess the exceedingly rare combination high quality production with almost perfect preservation. From an original mintage of 99 proofs, only a handful could possibly compare in quality or in eye appeal. Population: 2 in 68 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (4/04).

    Eagle PR67 Cameo NGC. Rich golden color is amplified by the coin's dazzling contrast and wondrous technical merits. Just 86 proofs were minted and this piece is surely among the finest survivors. Population: 3 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (4/04).

    Double Eagle PR67 Deep Cameo NGC. A solid Gem specimen with instantly appealing contrast and tinges of reddish-orange peripheral color. Wispy die polishing on the portrait is not to be confused with hairlines. Fantastic quality from a proof production of a mere 84 coins. Population: 2 in 67 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (4/04).
