    1907 Quarter Eagle, PR68 Cameo
    Tied for Finest at PCGS

    1907 $2 1/2 PR68 Cameo PCGS. JD-1, R.4. Ex: Simpson. The Philadelphia Mint produced 154 proof Liberty quarter eagles in 1907, the final year of the Liberty design. The coins were delivered in quarterly batches of 60, 29, 23, and 42 pieces. A single pair of dies was used to strike the proofs, with a paper clip shaped artifact on the bust tip and four nearly horizontal die lines in the second clear space in the shield, making it easy to differentiate between proofs and prooflike business strikes. John Dannreuther estimates the surviving population at 100-120 examples in all grades.

    This magnificent PR68 example is tied with one other coin for finest certified honors at PCGS across all degrees of contrast (4/20). The razor-sharp design elements are richly frosted, creating an intense cameo effect against the deeply mirrored fields. The yellow-gold surfaces approach technical perfection and eye appeal is terrific. This coin will be a welcome addition to the finest collection or Registry Set. This coin is pictured on PCGS CoinFacts. Population: 2 in 68 Cameo, 0 finer (4/20).
