    1901 Quarter Eagle, PR66 Cameo
    Great 20th Century Gold Proof

    1901 $2 1/2 PR66 Cameo PCGS. The 1901 quarter eagle issues are positioned not only at the start of a new century but at the end of a U.S. Mint era. The next year, Mint proof practice changed to de-emphasize field-to-device contrast, leading to a short-lived "brilliant era" of gold proofs before the Renaissance of American Coinage and matte processes took hold. This Cameo Premium Gem proof of the 1901 two and a half has a mix of pale yellow and richer orange shadings in the fields, the reverse showing the hues as almost concentric. Richly frosted central devices are sharply struck, while fields with a hint of "orange-peel" texture are reflective and carefully preserved. Population: 1 in 66 Cameo, 1 finer (4/13).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 288R, PCGS# 87927)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
