    Superb Gem Proof 1897 Deep Cameo Quarter

    1897 25C PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. A lightly toned Superb Gem that has a razor sharp strike and virtually pristine surfaces. There are a few freckles of pale gold patina on the cheek. The shield has a couple of miniscule planchet flaws, as struck. A tiny lintmark near star 9 is also as struck. Some curly die polish lines (as struck) are noted below the ear of Liberty. Only a fraction of the 731 proofs that were minted could match both the surface preservation and the deep cameo contrast of the present example. Struck from slightly rotated dies. Population: 2 in 67, 0 finer (4/03).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242C, PCGS# 95683)
