    1911 Pratt Two and a Half Dollar
    Sandblast Finish, PR63

    1911 $2 1/2 PR63 NGC. JD-1, R.4. Proof coinage represents the pinnacle of the Mint's production capabilities. From the mid-19th century until 1901, Mint officials used the well-known high-contrast finish with thickly frosted fields and deeply reflective fields. From 1902 through the end of the Liberty series the Mint used a brilliant, low-contrast finish. The introduction Pratt's sunken relief design posed a new challenge, requiring the Mint to use satin and matte finishes. This 1911 quarter eagle features finely textured orange-gold surfaces characteristic of the latter proof production method. A few wispy hairlines are the only signs of contact. One of 191 proof quarter eagles struck in 1911.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 289K, PCGS# 7960)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
