1892. NGC graded Proof 67 Ultra Cameo. A stunning white gem. Only 105 Proofs struck. Knife-edge, deeply frosted legends and design elements are surrounded by gleaming, fully mirrored fields. The appearance of this lovely coin is for all intents and purposes perfect, and even close inquiry with a magnifier reveals a very limited number of minor shortcomings. Perhaps only fifty percent of this Proof issue have managed to make it down to the present in all grades. A typical specimen falls within the 62 to 64 range. An elite few (see below) rival the condition of the distinctive coin offered here, and none surpass it; as a consequence we feel quite secure in placing this example within the condition census for Proofs of this date.

Proof Quarter Eagles are a favorite with numismatists. Most display a cameo appearance. Their design elements and beauty combine to make the collecting of them a worthwhile pursuit. Proof Liberty heads were made at the Philadelphia Mint and were sold to collectors from 1858 until 1907. Assembling a date run of them, especially in Proof, would be a fascinating challenge. In closing, the present coin will certainly be a highlight. Pop 3; none finer at NGC.
Estimated Value $25,000 - 27,000.

Realized $29,900
