    1893 Quarter Eagle, PR66 Deep Cameo
    Stellar Eye Appeal, Few Technical Rivals

    1893 $2 1/2 PR66 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. The proof 1893 quarter eagle had a mintage of 106 pieces, slightly less than production totals would amount to in the following years. No more than 50 to 75 examples survive, and Garrett and Guth suggest the actual number may be even lower, since the certified population of 82 coins is highly inflated by resubmissions. Three examples are permanently off the market, including two in the Smithsonian Institution and another in the ANS. Our Auction Archives show only 16 previous appearances of this issue in more than two decades, and most examples grade PR65 or lower numerically; Premium Gem or finer representatives are extremely rare.

    This piece showcases powerful eye appeal with a combination of stark field-device contrast and truly impressive surface preservation. The frosty motifs are fully brought up and there are no blemishes in the fields. A lovely coin that will please even the most discerning collector. Population: 3 in 66 Deep Cameo, 2 finer (5/15).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 288G, PCGS# 97919)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
