1885 $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded Proof 66 Ultra Cameo. A blazing bright gem. Excellent detail from a strong strike, the surfaces show sharp bright reddish gold color. Don't expect the anything in the way of a halfhearted impression left by the striking of the always-fresh Proof dies that made this piece, for we are glad to report the strength in the design is all that is expected: 100% needle-sharp detail. The luster glows. The fields resonate with smooth watery reflection. The coin itself is noteworthy since 1885 is a scarce year as a business strike. Proofs are rarely offered for sale. Only 87 Proofs struck. Pop 1; finest graded by NGC; only 2 Ultra Cameos graded at NGC. (PCGS # 7911) .
Estimated Value $22,000 - 25,000.

Realized $27,600
