    1897 Barber Quarter, PR66 Cameo
    Outstanding Eye Appeal

    1897 25C PR66 Cameo NGC. A decent mintage of 731 proof Barber quarters was achieved in 1897, and examples are not difficult to locate in most grades today. However, coins in Premium Gem condition with the Cameo designation are definitely rare. The present coin is a memorable specimen, with a full strike and deeply mirrored fields. The frosty design elements stand out in stark cameo contrast to the reflective surfaces, creating intense visual appeal. Census: 16 in 66 Cameo, 16 finer (7/10).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242C, PCGS# 85683)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
