    1896 Barber Quarter, Untoned PR68 Deep Cameo
    Ex: Bruce Scher #1 PCGS Registry Set

    1896 25C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Bruce Scher. This piece hails from the Bruce Scher Collection of #1 All-Time Finest PCGS Registry Sets, which in 2005 included eight such #1 sets: proof and circulation strike three cent nickels; proof Mercury dimes, Barber dimes, Barber quarters, and Barber halves; silver commemorative 50-piece type set; and (tied for) proof Walking Liberty half set.

    This piece is a strong candidate for either an advanced date set or a high-quality type set. The surfaces are silver-white and untoned. Thick, rich mint frost over the devices forms lavish contrast against the deeply mirrored, glassy fields. This coin really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated, showing a full strike and no visible imperfections. PCGS and NGC combined report 16 submissions of this issue in PR68 Deep/Ultra Cameo, and there are only three certified finer (10/14).
