    1893 Quarter, PR68 Cameo
    Beautifully Toned Example

    1893 25C PR68 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Two-toned cameo contrast on this coin is immediately apparent, even though each side has a significant overlay of toning. The reverse is essentially monochromatic, bright teal prevailing against a light accent of golden-rose around the margin. The obverse is iridescent in the truest sense of the word; multiple colors are splashed throughout. Rose, yellow, and sea-green appear primarily in the fields, while the frost on the device of Liberty dominates and gives the impression of brilliance in the center. An astonishingly beautiful proof, one of only eight so graded by PCGS. CAC: 9 in 68, 0 finer (11/19).
