1890. PCGS graded Proof 64. CAC Approved. Well struck. Housed in an Old Green Holder. Only 93 pieces minted, 50 to 60 examples known according to PCGS Pop Report. Frosted motifs as on most this year (although left unstated on the PCGS holder) and deeply mirrored fields form a pleasing study in bright golden contrast. The present Choice Proof 64 example is a treat to behold. Its boldness of strike, delicate cameo contrast, and golden brightness reveal aspects of a finer grade. If you seek a worthwhile Proof Liberty Quarter Eagle struck in the 19th century, perhaps for a type set or any other reason, this splendid little coin would serve your numismatic objective well! Pop 6; 10 finer, 7 in 65, 3 in 66. (PCGS # 7916) .
Estimated Value $5,500 - 6,000.

Realized $12,925
