Description & Analysis

In 1902, the Mint changed the way in which it prepared proof coinage dies. The new process removed much of the frost which was usually found on proof coins. This change was not popular and lasted only a few years. However, because of this change, 1903 proof coins are extremely hard to find with any cameo contrast at all. With a mintage of 197 pieces, only eight 1903 Liberty quarter eagles have garnered a cameo designation at NGC. (9/2016)
