    1912 Indian Quarter Eagle, PR65
    Elusive Matte Proof Issue

    1912 $2 1/2 PR65 NGC. The Mint varied the finish on proof gold coins almost every year from 1907 to 1915, in an effort to find a popular replacement for the brilliant finish of earlier years, which was not suitable for the new coinage designs of that era. A fine-grain matte texture was tried in 1912, with many microscopic facets that reflect the light. The coins are lighter in color than those of surrounding years, but collectors still preferred the earlier brilliant proofs, and many of the 197 pieces struck remained unsold at the end of the year. The 1912 Indian quarter eagle is the third rarest proof of the series in absolute terms.

    The present coin is a sharply detailed Gem with light orange-gold surfaces that show a few hints of rose. A shallow scratch below the first S in STATES is the only mentionable flaw. Census: 9 in 65 (1 in 65+), 30 finer (1/14).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7JYU, PCGS# 7961)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
