    1899 Quarter Eagle, PR65 Ultra Cameo
    Generous Contrast Throughout

    1899 $2 1/2 PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC. The bright orange-gold surfaces beam with luster on this Gem proof, and generous field-to-device contrast prevails on both sides. A few light hairlines in the fields before and behind the portrait of Liberty account for the grade, but they are neither distracting nor overt. The reverse presents a similar appearance, leading to good eye appeal throughout, and the strike is full on all design elements, as hoped for on a proof (but not always present). The turning-century date may provide extra appeal to some. Census: 7 in 65 Ultra Cameo (1 in 65 Ultra Cameo), 29 finer (2/15).(Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 288N, PCGS# 97925)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
