Liberty Head $2-1/2 Gold, Proof (1859-1907)
The mintage figures for the $2½ Liberty Proofs jumped dramatically in 1859, with 80 pieces struck (if the Mint records are correct). That doesn’t mean that this date (and many others as well) is lacking in rarity, as just a few examples are known of some of the coins. Key issues include the Proof-only 1863, the classic 1875 and many other dates. Some of the issues come with magnificent cameo contrast and a few have been preserved in superb condition.
