    Select Cameo Proof 1897 Double Eagle

    1897 $20 PR63 Cameo NGC. Only 86 proofs were struck of this late-date issue, and it is reliably estimated that today only 20 pieces are extant in all grades. This is only the second cameo we have handled in the past decade, the other being in our 2001 June Long Beach Sale. Even though the grade is different from the other three coins in this 1897 gold proof set, this piece has a similar appearance with a pronounced orange-peel effect in the fields. The devices are nicely frosted and display a noticeable cameo effect against the depth of mirrored reflectivity in the fields. Noticeably hairlined, but still a lovely example of this rarely seen proof issue. Population: 2 in 63, 6 finer (11/03).
    From a 10-Piece 1897 Proof Set. (#89113) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 26EJ, PCGS# 89113)
