    1894 Barber Quarter, PR68 Cameo
    Gorgeous Rainbow Toning

    1894 25C PR68 ★ Cameo NGC. The 1894 had one of the higher proof mintages of the period, and is proportionately available in grades through PR66. Finer pieces, however, are conditionally scarce and major rarities at the lofty PR68 level, with or without a Cameo designation. Fully defined design elements beautifully accent the deep mirroring in the fields on each side of this stellar coin amid vivid, concentric bands of rainbow toning. The relief elements are noticeably frosted with modest cameo contrast, despite the array of toning over each side. Census: 1 in 68 Cameo (1 in 68 Cameo), 1 finer (8/15).
