1886 $2.50 Liberty. PCGS graded Proof 65 Deep Cameo. Rich golden colors on both sides. The surfaces are gleaming with color, and quite sparkling, with the grade acting on behalf of its outstanding Gem Proof quality. That said, now we turn to the strike: this coin, comparable to other Proofs of its vintage, was struck with the utmost scientific precision on the stars, hair and eagle feathers; again, Proofs were made to be displayed and so almost always are exciting in their razor-sharpness. Put a magnifying glass to it anywhere and be amazed by what you see. Nothing baffling about why PCGS assigned the grade it did: the coin is mesmerizing! Only 88 Proofs struck. Pop 4; 1 in 66 (PCGS # 97912) .
Estimated Value $16,000 - 18,000.

Realized $21,850
