    Outstanding 1897 Quarter Eagle
    PR68 ★ Ultra Cameo
    One of the Two Finest Certified

    1897 $2 1/2 PR68 ★ Ultra Cameo NGC. CAC. NGC and PCGS have certified approximately 85 1897 quarter eagle proofs, from a mintage of 136 pieces, the majority having Cameoed surfaces. About 40 examples have been assigned Ultra/Deep Cameo classification. Five of the Ultra examples have received the Star designation, including this PR68 example, one of two so graded.
    The rich peach-gold surfaces display outstanding gold-on-black contrast, which is further accentuated by the boldly impressed design elements. As expected, both sides are immaculately preserved. A truly wonderful specimen that is one of the two finest certified.
    Purchased in 1981 by Mark Salzberg and John Albanese for $7,000.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 288L, PCGS# 97923)
