1893 $2.50 Liberty. PCGS graded Proof 63 Deep Cameo. Only 106 Proofs struck. A hint of light golden toning. A remarkable 1903 Proof that emits eye-catching gold color, with no marks or problems for the skeptic to find. Next a word about the strike. The pressure transmitted from the specially prepared obverse and reverse dies to the gold planchet reveals itself in sharp stars, hair curls, coronet edge (sharp as a knife blade), and, on the reverse, just as sharp feathers, shield, and all lettering in the legends. There is no mistaking this Type as at the summit of collector interest, a coin everyone will fall in love with instinctively since collecting Proof gold is woven into the very texture of modern, high-end numismatics. Pop 1; 8 finer at PCGS in DCAM (PCGS # 97919) .
Estimated Value $5,000 - 5,500.

Realized $6,325
