1881 $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded Proof 61 Cameo. Moderate marks in the fields. An impressive rare Proof with tempered luster and yet residual glitter from the mirror fields and natural toning highlights. Representative strike for the date, 100% crisp at the head and hair area of the obverse, full stars, and an outstanding razor-sharp eagle, exactly the areas where objective quality matters the most. The low mintage explains everything, there is no reason to disbelieve us when we say this is a rare date! While its sale may not lead to a storm of bidding, we expect to see a fair show of bid cards or nods from the room when the auction process begins on this lot. Only 51 proofs issued. Pop 2; 10 finer in cameo at NGC (PCGS # 87907) .
Estimated Value $4,500 - 5,000.

Realized $5,290
