1907 Quarter Eagle, PR68 Cameo
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.

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).
