    1900 Quarter Eagle
    High-Contrast PR65+ Ultra Cameo

    1900 $2 1/2 PR65+ Ultra Cameo NGC. CAC. This 1900-dated quarter eagle was made shortly before the Philadelphia Mint, in 1902, altered its method of proof gold manufacture to a low-contrast format. Given the profound level of device frost to deep field reflectivity present on this PR65+ Ultra Cameo coin, numismatists will recognize that as a fine thing, indeed. The surfaces are predominantly orange-gold, but the fields put on a midnight-black contrast when the coin is tilted. This turn-of-the-odometer issue hails from a proof mintage of 205 pieces, but few today show deeper contrast or higher aesthetic appeal. The population data are certain to include duplicates. Census: 9 in 65 (1 in 65+) Ultra Cameo, 33 finer (3/13).
