    1892 Quarter, PR68 Deep Cameo
    Astounding Visual and Technical Quality
    Among the Finest Known

    1892 25C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The Mint more than doubled proof production in 1892 with the expectation that collectors would want to purchase first-year souvenirs of the new Barber coinage. A total of 1,245 proofs were struck that year compared to 600 pieces in 1891. Consequently, the 1892 is one of the more accessible issues in this format, although rarely are coins offered as spectacular as this Superb Gem Deep Cameo proof.

    The black-and-white contrast on each side is nothing short of astounding, grabbing the attention of the viewer and not letting go. The piece appears exactly as it must have 128 years ago at the time it was minted. The fields showcase seemingly depthless mirroring, and the devices are coated in a thick blanket of rich mint frost. Absolutely worth a premium bid. Population: 5 in 68 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (4/20).
