    Captivating 1896 Quarter, Gem Cameo Proof 66

    1896 25C PR66 Cameo NGC. The 1896 is perhaps our favorite proof Barber Quarter for type purposes because it is an issue that tends to come really nice. This is just such a survivor, the surfaces being silky smooth from rim to rim with hardly a distracting blemish to report. The boldly contrasted features are fully defined beneath blushes of delicate gold and champagne-tan iridescence that further enhances the already captivating eye appeal. A Gem that is sure to elicit strong bids from countless collectors. Census: 14 in 66 Cameo, 21 finer (11/05).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242B, PCGS# 85682)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
