1895 $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded Proof 66 Ultra Cameo. A blazing golden gem. Downright gorgeous field-to-device contrast is perhaps the first attribute that a viewer sees when gazing admiringly over both sides of this razor-sharp Gem. It is not the only feature. It is only one among many. E pluribus unum. Bright, rich, resonating golden color is also a commendable trait, as are needle sharp stars and hair curls. There is not a single tarnish spot or injury that would call into question the assigned grade, instead we find many positive qualities. We hope the next owner will include it in a landmark collection of rare Proofs. The mintage of Proof quarter eagles this year is 119 pieces -- a figure that is near the average for Proofs in the Liberty series in the 1890s to 1900s. Pop 8; 10 finer, 3 in 66 star, 4 in 67, 2 in 67 star, 1 in 68 star (PCGS # 7921) .
Estimated Value $17,000 - 19,000.

Realized $25,875
