Quarter Eagle NGC PR61CAM CAC. This is a very proof quarter
eagle from the last decade of the 19th century. This is
also confirmed by the sticker that CAC ( Collectors Acceptance
Corp ) awarded this coin.
A total of only 106 proof quarter eagles were minted in
1893. First struck in 1840, the Liberty Quarter eagles
are one of the most extensive types of gold coinage, only
outnumbered by the larger half eagles. Both gold denominations
have an extensive coin collector base and the amount of
people seeing investment opportunities in these coins
is growing by leaps and bounds.
The present specimen is a true cameo with considerable
eye appeal. Sharply struck, as can be expected for this
specially prepared proof gold coin, the gorgeous honey
colored surfaces have great contrast. A very affordable
example of this 19th century proof gold coin.
