    Description

    Remarkable Superb Proof 1895 Barber Quarter

    1895 25C PR68 Cameo NGC. An absolutely extraordinary proof type coin that has been left to tone naturally over the past century. The peripheries show circular tones of deep golden-brown patina from long time storage in a cardboard album. The fields are very deeply mirrored on each side, and provide a strong backlight to the toned surfaces. A diagnostic small curlicue-shaped lint mark rests directly before Liberty's eye, this being present on most 1895 Proof Quarters. As expected of the high grade, there are no reportable problems or detractions on either side of this near perfect specimen. Census: 13 in 68, 1 finer (11/05).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242A, PCGS# 85681)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
