1897. PCGS graded Proof 66. Lovely rich golden toning. Only 136 Proofs struck. A strikingly beautiful gem of the sort that could easily draw one's attention from across a crowded bourse floor, for that's how beautiful it truly is! Heavily frosted motifs and deeply mirrored rich golden-colored fields exhibit a nuance of fresh reflection rarely seen, at the rims and throughout the fields as well as the balance of the coin. The present survivor must easily be among the more gorgeous 1897 Liberty quarter eagles, or quarter eagle Proofs of any date for that matter. Amazingly, a half dozen grading events have been registered at this level or finer, though we cannot imagine how they could be any more extraordinary, for such is the lot of the present beauty. Pop 5; 1 finer in 67 (PCGS # 7923) .
Estimated Value $17,000 - 18,000.
The Wayne Fowler Estate.

Realized $20,125
