    1895 Quarter, PR68 Cameo
    Extraordinary Quality, Gorgeous Toning

    1895 25C PR68 Cameo PCGS. CAC. This absolutely extraordinary proof type coin exhibits gorgeous toning, the reverse showing deep sea-green, gold, and rose-red, the obverse more brilliant with a peripheral ring of gunmetal-blue and pink-champagne. Deeply mirrored fields on each side provide a strong backlight to the toned surfaces and establish strong contrast with the motifs. A diagnostic small curlicue-shaped lint mark rests directly before Liberty's eye, one present on many 1895 proof quarters. As expected of the high grade, no problems or distractions occur on either side of this near-perfect specimen. Population: 4 in 68 Cameo, 0 finer (7/13).
