1893. PCGS graded Proof 65 Cameo PQ. CAC Approved. A fully white gem. Only 792 minted. A splendid brilliant and flashy Gem Proof with forceful luster, a confident strike, rolling mirror fields, and eye appeal that just won't relinquish your attention!

As on the Great Seal, the eagle carries a banner in its beak reading "E PLURIBUS UNUM". A field of 13 stars (the same number as on the obverse, representing the 13 original American colonies) appears above the eagle, while at the top edge, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" is inscribed, denomination below. Pop 19; 25 finer (PCGS # 86540) .
