    1913 Quarter Eagle, PR66
    Rare So Fine
    First PCGS Premium Gem Offered

    1913 $2 1/2 PR66 PCGS. By 1913, proof Indian quarter eagle sales were on an unstoppable decline and only 165 pieces were struck. Fewer than 100 examples are thought to survive in all grades, the rest likely having been spent or otherwise lost to attrition at some point in time. The combined PCGS and NGC population of 95 pieces likely reflects a number of resubmissions. Since our Permanent Auction Archives began in 1993, we have handled a proof 1913 quarter eagle on only 26 separate occasions, including reappearances of some previously offered coins. Although NGC reports a few dozen pieces in PR66 and finer, we estimate that the PCGS population of nine coins in this grade and one finer is more in line with this issue's high-grade rarity; we have previously offered only five Premium Gems, and this is the first such example in a PCGS holder. The design elements are fully struck, and the rich matte luster showcases pleasing olive-gold color Close scrutiny with a loupe reveals only a single imperfection: a short, thin line behind the eagle's head. We anticipate tremendous demand for this rare offering.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 289M, PCGS# 7962)
