Description:
1884 Seated Liberty Quarter, PR68 Cameo
Only One Finer Cameo Proof
1884 25C PR68 Cameo NGC. Only 8,875 quarters were struck in 1884 (875 proofs), which is one of the lowest total production runs in the entire Seated quarter series. While not especially rare as a proof, this is a piece of singular beauty. Each side is brilliant, and the fields are deeply reflective. The devices show a significant amount of mint frost, which gives the coin its pronounced cameo effect. Nearly perfect surfaces, a strong magnifier will be necessary to pick up any post-striking impairments. An oval-shaped lint mark is located between the eagle's left (facing) wing and the left side of the scroll. When one views this magnificent proof, it is difficult to believe that NGC has actually graded another coin finer -- now that is a coin we would like to see. Census: 2 in 68 Cameo, 1 finer (3/11).
