    1893 Liberty Quarter Eagle, PR64+
    Stunning Deep Cameo Surfaces

    1893 $2 1/2 PR64+ Deep Cameo PCGS. According to Mint records, an average-sized mintage of 106 proof Liberty quarter eagles was produced in 1893 and PCGS CoinFacts estimates 50-75 examples are extant in all grades today. David Akers and Walter Breen both commented that the 1893 proof was at least as rare as the lower mintage 1892 issue. Two coins are impounded in the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution and a third piece is in the collection of the American Numismatic Society.

    The present coin is a spectacular Plus-graded Choice proof, with razor-sharp definition on all design elements and deeply reflective fields throughout. This coin shows repunching on the lower parts of 93 in the date, a feature Walter Breen believed was diagnostic for 1893 proofs. The devices have a thick coat of mint frost that creates intense cameo contrast with the mirrored fields. The gold-on-black cameo flash this coin displays when tilted in the light is truly spectacular. The lemon-yellow surfaces show only minor signs of contact and the overall visual appeal is tremendous. Population: 5 in 64 (1 in 64+) Deep Cameo, 13 finer (1/18).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 288G, PCGS# 97919)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
