Lot 1393

1884 $2.50 Liberty. PCGS graded Proof 65 Cameo. In PCGS holder 13132569. A stunning Gem Proof with vivid magenta toning on both sides. This gorgeous gem could bring a run-away price. 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. Full strong cameo contrast, too. The coin itself is noteworthy since 1884 is a scarce year as a business strike. Proofs are rarely offered for sale. You'll never suffer remorse if you bid on, and succeed in acquiring, this gorgeous Gem! Only 73 Proofs struck for this low mintage date. Pop 1; 1 finer in 66. (PCGS # 87910) .
Estimated Value $22,000 - 24,000.

Realized $24,150
