    Extraordinary 1892 Barber Quarter
    Tied for Finest Certified
    PR68 Cameo

    1892 25C PR68 Cameo NGC. Type Two Reverse, the usual reverse hub for proofs. This is a simply beautiful coin to behold whose mostly untoned surfaces display a shimmering silver-white sheen. There is some light iridescence over the right reverse, but the dominant feature on both sides is the stark contrast between icy devices and glassy fields. There is not a single distracting blemish, as one should expect for the PR68 level of preservation. Crisply struck and desirable. Census: 4 in 68 Cameo, 0 finer (12/08).
    Ex: Trane Collection (Heritage, 1/2003), lot 6787, which realized $7,475.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2427, PCGS# 85678)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
