1855 Gold $1

1898 $2.50 PCGS PR66+DCAM CAC- $36,500.00

Gem Deep CAMEO. Only 3 ( Three ) 1898 quarter eagles have been approved by CAC in Proof 66 Deep Cameo. Incredibly beautiful and rare this is a coin to be reckoned with! Deeply reflective fields are seen, with the devices highlighted in a nice manner, in particular on the reverse.

As can be expected for a Proof the strike is sharp, and all details are prominently visible. Dark yellow golden color is seen on both sides, toned to a dark color when tilted. 19th century Proof gold, and in fact all pre 1933 Proof gold is extremely scarce, and any offering should be considered, especially when affordable such as the present piece.

Please contact me by email or telephone 1-800-624-1870 to reserve this great coin.

Coinage designs of this time were fairly stagnant and stereotyped. In recognition of these problems, in 1891 the Treasury sponsored a public competition to improve them. Unfortunately Charles Barber, the Engraver, tossed out every entry because he could not face any competition. When he was forced to redesign the coins himself, he simply reversed Morgan’s Liberty head. His other contributions were minor modifications here and there.

Christian Gobrecht’s quarter eagle was produced without substantial modification from 1840 to 1907, the longest span in any United States coinage series. It uses the Coronet design which shows Liberty facing left, her hair tied tightly in beads, except for two curls one down the back of her neck and the other on the side below her ear, with LIBERTY inscribed on the coronet. She is surrounded by thirteen stars, and the date is below the truncation.

The reverse shows the heraldic eagle facing left holding arrows and olive branch it its talons. The inscription UNITED STATES OF AMERICA arcs around it, interrupted by the wing tips, and the denomination 2 ½ D. is below. The denomination is separated from the legend with dots. The weight remained the same, but the diameter was reduced from the previous issue to 18 millimeters.
