    Incredibly Toned PR68 Cameo 1893 Quarter

    1893 25C PR68 Cameo PCGS. From a small but high-quality consignment of high grade proof Barber quarters, this is our favorite. The 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 with bright teal covering most of that side and just a light accent of golden-rose around the margin. The obverse, on the other hand, is iridescent in the truest sense of the word; that is, multiple colors are splashed across that side. Rose, yellow, and sea-green are seen primarily in the fields, while the frost on the device of Liberty dominates that side and gives the impression of brilliance in the center. An astonishingly beautiful proof and one of only three so graded by PCGS (11/07). (Registry values: N4719)
