    Spectacular Quality 1896 Quarter PR69 Ultra Cameo NGC

    1896 25C PR69 Ultra Cameo NGC. Magnificent white on black contrast and pristine fields and devices may be par for the course on a modern proof Statehood Quarter, but to find this extraordinary combination of preservation and production quality on a nineteenth century Barber Quarter is remarkable. A couple of pinpoint obverse planchet flaws, which are strictly of mint origin, are all that deny perfection. As is often the case for the proof Barber series, the surface within and just beneath the ear is mirrored, the outcome of low device relief in the vicinity, and thorough die preparation by the dedicated mint employees of the day. Surprisingly, as of (9/05), the present piece is not alone at the PR69 Ultra Cameo level, and shares its status as finest certified with one other specimen.(#95682) (Registry values: N7079)

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