1901 Liberty Head Quarter Eagle. JD-1, the only known dies. Rarity-4-. Proof-67 Deep Cameo (PCGS). CAC.Exceptional golden-yellow surfaces are expertly preserved and temptingly close to pristine. Produced to the highest standards of quality, as well, both sides sport full striking detail and profound cameo contrast between frosty devices and mirrored fields. At 223 pieces produced, the 1901 is the highest mintage entry in the Proof Liberty Head quarter series. It is also popular for type purposes as the final issue of the type produced with a cameo finish. Although the 1901 is plentiful by classic Proof gold standards, survivors are scarce in an absolute sense with John Dannreuther (<em>United States Proof Coins, Volume IV: Gold</em>, 2018) accounting for 130 to 170 coins extant in all grades. With virtually pristine surfaces that have obviously been handled with great care since the time of striking, the coin offered here is nothing short of rare from a condition standpoint. Sure to please even the most discerning Proof gold type or date collector.
