    Description

    1896 Quarter, PR68 Ultra Cameo
    Exceptional Production and Preservation

    1896 25C PR68 Ultra Cameo NGC. Quality control was notably higher in the Mint in this year, and is responsible for the larger (relatively speaking) numbers of nearly perfect proofs from 1896. From NGC we see that there are 11 coins certified as PR68 Ultra Cameo, and there are even two pieces finer (8/13). This is an all-brilliant example whose devices are covered with a thick layer of mint frost. The mint luster is set against the illimitable depth of mirrored reflectivity in the fields. As one would expect, there are virtually no contact marks present.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242B, PCGS# 95682)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
