    Choice Proof 1904 Liberty Quarter Eagle
    Rare Ultra Cameo Example

    1904 $2 1/2 PR64 Ultra Cameo NGC. Only 170 proof Liberty quarter eagles were struck in 1904. Although a few dates of the period claim even lower mintages, the 1904 is the most challenging 20th century issue of the series to find in unimpaired condition. In addition, few proofs of the era are seen with Cameo surfaces, since the Mint switched to an all-brilliant finish in 1902.
    This marvelous Choice example displays deeply mirrored fields that contrast profoundly with the unusually frosty devices to produce a stunning cameo effect. The design elements are sharply detailed and the light yellow-gold surfaces are free of mentionable distractions. Census: 4 in 64 Ultra Cameo, 8 finer (12/12).(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 288U, PCGS# 97930)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
