Proof, Ultra Cameo. Plus and Star Designated! Rare Civil War Date. Only 50 Minted!

Every now and then we come across a coin which is so special that it demands the attention of even the most seasoned connoisseur’s.

The events of the American Civil War are told in every classroom across the country. There is no child by the age of 10 who isn’t keenly aware of who Abraham Lincoln was, or of the many lessons of this great internal struggle. It affected every person from coast to coast in one form or another. Brother against Brother. Families ripped apart. The bloodshed was immense, but by 1864 some of the ominous clouds on the horizon could be seen lifting just a bit. The War would last less than another year.

Naturally, coinage from the Civil War holds a special place in the hearts and minds of collectors. Visions of the era can be imagined every time you pick up a coin of this magnitude. Historically, it is one of the most important relics of our nation’s past that money can buy.

A mere 50 examples of the Proof Eagle were struck in 1864. Of that, only 12-15 examples are believed to be in the finest collections world-wide.

This gorgeous PR63+ Deep Cameo example drips with deep, watery fields and icy frost devices. An extraordinary opportunity for any world class collector!
