    2007-W Quarter-Ounce Platinum Eagle
    Very Rare Frosted FREEDOM, FS-901
    PR70 Deep Cameo

    2007-W $25 Quarter-Ounce Platinum Eagle, Statue of Liberty, Frosted FREEDOM, FS-901, PR70 Deep Cameo PCGS. The 2007-W quarter-ounce platinum eagle has a mintage of 6,017 pieces. But both the Guide Book and Cherrypickers' agree that only 21 pieces were inadvertently struck without a mirrored finish within FREEDOM. Cherrypickers' implies the template for die finishing was changed intentionally, which would make the variety a pattern. This argument is bolstered by the existence of similarly rare Frosted Freedom varieties for the half-ounce and one-ounce 2007-W platinum eagles. In any event, far less than the 21 pieces have been reported, and in fact the (9/17) PCGS Population lists only a single example, certified as PR70 Deep Cameo. While that is the same grade as the present coin, it appears to be a different specimen than the one shown at PCGS Coin Facts. It is an intricately struck piece with unimprovable white-on-black contrast. A tiny fleck on the reverse (due east of the F in FREEDOM) provides an identifier. This is the first appearance of any Frosted Freedom variety in a Heritage auction.
