    Superb Proof 1896 Quarter Dollar

    1896 25C PR67 NGC. A memorably preserved, originally toned example with devices that seem afloat in the fragile, nicely mirrored fields, although this is not listed as "cameo" on the NGC holder. The quality of proof production during this time frame is spectacularly high, with specimens from gold down to minors displaying as much contrast as any in our nation's coinage history. Not a single hairline can be found on this amazing proof Barber, even under magnification, and only a few pinpoint frost breaks are noticed on the portrait, quite possibly as struck. Population: 19 in 67, 20 finer (6/05).(#5682)(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242B, PCGS# 5682)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
