    1913 Quarter Eagle, PR66
    Fewer Than 100 Proofs Known

    1913 $2 1/2 PR66 NGC. Ex: Hilt Collection. Proof quarter eagle production continued its gradual decline in 1913, with only 165 coins produced -- down from 197 pieces in 1912. Fewer than 100 examples are believed extant, making the 1913 one of the less often seen proof issues of this short-lived type.

    The 1913 proofs were manufactured with a fine sandblast finish that delivers a faintly luminescent matte surface, essentially identical to that used on the previous issue, but different than that seen on the Roman Gold finish of the 1909 and 1910 issues. This finish proved unpopular with collectors of the period due to its drastically different appearance from the well-known brilliant cameos of years past, but modern-day numismatists appreciate the unique appeal and historical importance which these sandblast proofs offer. The present piece is fully struck and the delicate olive-gold surfaces are largely undisturbed. Census: 27 in 66, 13 finer (3/15).
    From The Liberty USA Collection, Part 2.(Registry values: N7079)
