1906 $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded Proof 67 Cameo. Star. A nice untoned example. 160 struck. The Mint's production of Proof Quarter Eagles waffled around the 100 to 200 pieces level after 1900. Although the year's mintage figure suggests that the 1906 is easily obtainable, the opposite seems to be the case. In fact, we suggest that as few as 50 examples of this date are in collections, the main portion of which lie below the Proof 67 level. The swimming deep fields act to focus all light like a golden diamond into the deepest recesses of your eyes, a facet, if you will, that makes a beautiful environment for the cameo frosted devices. The color is loaded with deep gold shades; further, there are no marks, spots or disruptive hairlines. A connoisseur's dream! Pop 4; 3 finer in 68 (PCGS # 87932) .
Estimated Value $20,000 - 22,000.
