Title: 1881 Gold $2.50. Proof-66+ DCAM PCGS. CAC.
Header: Exquisite DCAM Gem Proof 1881 $2.50
Description: Here is the proverbial sight for sore eyes! This beautiful gold quarter eagle is awash with rich orange-gold toning that soaks the frosted motifs and surrounding deep mirrors. Aside from a faint toning spot above the eagle’s near TE, the coin is essentially flawless. Only 51 Proofs were produced of the date, and PCGS suggests as few as 30 to 35 pieces are extant in all states of preservation. Gems such as this glowing tribute to the coiner’s art are infrequently offered in the numismatic marketplace; they are always difficult to obtain, especially when the pinnacle of quality is reached, as here. About as nice a Proof Liberty quarter eagle as you are apt to see any time soon.
PCGS Census: 6; 1 finer within the DCAM designation (Proof-67 DCAM).
