1886 Liberty Head Quarter Eagle. JD-1. Rarity-5. Proof-67 Cameo (NGC)

$42,500

Incredible Top Pop Proof 1886 Liberty $2.50

The Sole Finest in this Category

This is a spectacular little jewel that represents the sole finest example graded in the Cameo category. Peach and tangerine shades are enhanced by a desirable orange-peel texture in the fields. Sharply defined with a rich satiny texture on the devices and well mirrored fields. A truly ideal representative of this issue with superior surface quality and original patina throughout. An irresistible opportunity for the advanced collector.

Just 88 Proof quarter eagles were struck in 1886 and only about half survive for today’s collectors. PCGS CoinFacts and John Dannreuther agree on a range of just 35 to 45 known. Dannreuther points out that 41 pieces were sold in 1888 as part of complete Proof sets, while the balance were acquired individually from the Philadelphia Mint by collectors at the time. Most survivors are in grades of Proof-65 and lower, making the Proof-67 Cameo (NGC) an astounding rarity. It ranks as the sole finest at NGC and PCGS in this category.

Ex Zito Collection.
