    Dazzling PR68 Deep Cameo 1892 Quarter

    1892 25C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. Type Two Reverse. One of the first things one learns when studying U.S. numismatics is that first year of type dates were often saved in relatively large numbers because of the newness of the design type. That is certainly the case with 1892 Barber coinage. However, commonness as a date should not be confused with a lack of desirability or difficulty in the ultimate grade(s). Only one other PCGS PR68 Deep Cameo has been certified, and NGC has graded seven pieces as PR68 Ultra Cameo (11/07).
    This is an exceptional coin that displays stark white-on-black cameo contrast. The cameo effect is equally matched on both sides. The devices are heavily frosted, and the surfaces overall are essentially perfect, as indicated by the grade. Brilliant throughout. (Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2427, PCGS# 95678)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
