    1896 Quarter, PR68 Ultra Cameo
    Stunning Contrast

    1896 25C PR68 Ultra Cameo NGC. Many collectors consider the proofs of 1896-1898 to be a high mark for the U.S. Mint, and after one glance at this PR68 Ultra Cameo quarter it would be hard to disagree for the first of those years at least. Stunningly frosted devices stand out from gleaming mirrors that show only a hint of golden-peach color at the lower reverse and a small spot of toning near the E on the ribbon the eagle holds in its beak. A high-grade coin that also displays well, welcome traits for the wise collector who knows the two all-too-frequently do not go hand-in-hand. Census: 11 in 68 (1 in 68 ), 3 finer (11/14).(Registry values: N4719)

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

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
