Description & Analysis

A rare and important proof quarter eagle, of which only 88 pieces were struck. Curiously, this date was missing from both the Eliasberg and Amon Carter collections, and while that fact may not be especially significant in the overall scope of proof gold, it does point to the limited availability of this issue. Only three dozen or so examples are believed to exist and still be recognized as proofs.
