    Elusive Proof 1893 Isabella Quarter

    1893 25C Isabella Quarter PR64 NGC. According to the Swiatek/Breen reference, a mere 103 proof Isabella Quarters were struck. These consisted of the first hundred strikes from the die, and were eventually followed by the 400th, 1492nd, and 1892nd coins struck. This piece appears to be beyond any doubt as far as proof status is concerned. The fields have glassy reflectivity throughout and the striking details are unparalleled except among other unquestioned proofs. The surfaces are brilliant and when closely examined reveal scattered tiny lint marks, a result of static electricity from the dies having been wiped with a cloth (a trait commonly found on proofs but usually lacking on business strikes). Population: 15 in 64, 6 finer (2/03). (NGC ID# BYMM, PCGS# 9221)
