RARE CAC APPROVED PCGS PR64DCAM 1895 EAGLE
For most Proof gold collectors, the purchase of a double eagle is not likely due to price prohibitions, leaving the Liberty Head eagle the best candidate for a large-sized coin for their Proof holdings.
The 1895 is not as common a date in the Proof Liberty eagle series as one might think. Only 56 struck were struck and the survival rate is around 50% meaning that two dozen or so are known. These are mostly in the PR63 to PR65 range and not often with full Deep Cameo contrast.
This lovely borderline Gem shows the exceptional black and white appearance that one hopes to see on a Proof gold coin certified as Deep Cameo. The Mint was at the top of its game when it came to producing Proof gold during the mid-1890’s and this piece has thick, unbroken frost on the devices which is nicely contrasted by watery, reflective fields. When this coin is tilted towards a light source and examined with 5x magnification, it is possible to see a few wispy hairlines but there are no marks of note or mint-caused flaws.
PCGS has graded three 1895 eagles in PR64DCAM with two in PR65, one in PR65+ and two in PR66. CAC has approved four examples of this date in DCAM: two in PR64 and two in PR66. I believe that all of these figures are slightly inflated by resubmissions.
No PCGS PR64 DCAM and have sold at auction. An NGC PR65 Ultra Cameo realized $44,650 in the 2017 ANA auction; it wasn’t approved by CAC.
This would make an excellent selection as a type coin representing the popular With Motto Liberty Head design for the ten dollar gold denomination.
