    Beautifully Toned, Superb Proof 67 ★ 1894 Quarter

    1894 25C PR67 Cameo ★ NGC. A remarkably toned piece that has earned the coveted ★ designation from NGC. Even the most jaded collector will take notice of the wonderful, original color that enhances the specimen strike. The obverse has a peripheral band of electric-blue color that is bordered with crimson-magenta and frames the amber-golden center, while the reverse is much lighter with a very thin peripheral ring of antique-gold, crimson, and deep blue patina. The strike is razor-sharp, with the corners of the shield and the fletchings all delivered with exquisite detail. The cameo contrast is somewhat understated, however, the surfaces are magnificently preserved. A couple of very minor luster grazes are mentioned on Liberty's neck, these being visible only at certain angles. Just 972 proofs were struck and this is currently (11/04) tied with 11 others at both services as the finest certified.(#85680) (Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2429, PCGS# 85680)
