    1912 Indian Quarter Eagle, PR66
    Very Rare Any Finer

    1912 $2 1/2 PR66 PCGS Secure. CAC. The Philadelphia Mint continued to vary the finish on proof issues in 1912, trying to find a style that was both practical for use on the sunken design of the smaller gold denominations and the basined fields of the larger coins, and aesthetically appealing to contemporary collectors, who favored the old brilliant finish proofs. A fine-grain matte texture was tried in 1912, with many microscopic facets that reflect the light. Despite the lighter appearance of the 1912 proofs, the collecting public remained dissatisfied and many of the 197 examples struck were never distributed. Probably no more than 60-70 examples survive today in all grades, making the 1912 the third rarest proof of the series in absolute terms.

    This delightful Premium Gem offers sharply detailed design elements and impeccably preserved orange-gold surfaces with the understated matte luster characteristic of the series. This coin possesses a blend of high technical quality and outstanding eye appeal that will be difficult to match. Population: 10 in 66 (1 in 66+), 4 finer (10/15).
