    Description

    1896 Quarter, PR66 Cameo
    Starkly Contrasted on Each Side

    1896 25C PR66 Cameo NGC. The 1896 is a collector favorite. It is an available date as a proof and arguably the best-produced proof in the entire Barber series. This piece shows why. The surfaces are brilliant throughout, which allows full viewing of the stark white-on-black cameo effect. Naturally, there are no observable defects on either side of this highly impressive cameo. Census: 20 in 66 Cameo, 27 finer (1/11).(Registry values: N2998)

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

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
