    Superb Colorfully Toned Proof 1892 Quarter

    1892 25C MS68 PCGS. Type One Reverse, as identifiable by the position of the eagle's left (facing) wingtip relative to the E in UNITED. The first-year 1892 may be a common coin in an absolute sense, but it is not often that we can offer a solidly graded Superb Gem with beautiful, original toning. A gorgeous Barber quarter, the obverse features waves of cobalt-blue, gold, lavender, and ruby-red color while the reverse has equally vivid blushes of pink-magenta, jade-green, antique-gold, and crimson patina. Vibrant mint frost swirls beneath the patina, and the fully impressed features are fully appreciable in the absence of bothersome abrasions, as would be expected of the assigned grade. One of only eight MS68s thus far graded by both services combined (1/06).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23XT, PCGS# 5601)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
