    1896 Quarter Eagle, PR65 Deep Cameo
    One of the Best-Produced
    Late-19th Century Gold Issues

    1896 $2 1/2 PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. The 1896 and 1898 proof gold issues have much in common with their silver counterparts, in that they display some of the deepest, most impeccable field-device contrast known in the late 19th century. The 1896 quarter eagle was produced to the extent of 132 pieces, of which probably 65 to 80 survive today. This Gem Deep Cameo proof is deeply mirrored, as expected, displaying strong mint frost over devices. Magnification shows a slight orange-peel texture in the fields on each side. The overall surface quality is quite high, and only a few tiny contact marks, including a shallow diagonal one on the cheek, prevent an even higher grade. Population: 7 in 65 Deep Cameo, 7 finer (10/12).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 288K, PCGS# 97922)
