    Richly Contrasted 1893 Quarter Eagle
    PR64 Deep Cameo

    1893 $2 1/2 PR64 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. Most examples of the 1893 quarter eagle are in the PR64-PR65 range, although pieces can occasionally be found up to PR67. With Deep Cameo surfaces as here, however, this piece is conditionally much more elusive. PCGS has graded 29 non-Cameo or Cameo coins, but in Deep Cameo this piece is one of four at the PR64 level, with seven finer (10/09). The contrast on this example is splendid and obvious, with heavy frost on the devices and radiant mirrors that create the desired "black gold" effect. The only "flaw" of note is a tiny black spot on the lower truncation of Liberty's bust. Perhaps this precludes an even finer grade, but the eye appeal is nevertheless great. Population: 2 in 64 Deep Cameo, 7 finer (10/09).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 288G, PCGS# 97919)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
