    1897 Quarter, Attractively Toned PR68 Cameo
    Tied for Finest Certified

    1897 25C PR68 Cameo NGC. CAC. In terms of relative scarcity, the 1897 is only a moderately difficult date among proofs in the Barber quarter series. But it is one of the better-produced dates and as such is popular for type purposes. This is an extraordinary coin that shows illimitable depth of mirrored reflectivity in the fields and noticeable contrasting mint frost on the devices, all this abundantly evident through the scattered russet and blue toning. Close examination with a loupe fails to reveal any contact marks. Census: 3 in 68 Cameo, 0 finer (12/11).(Registry values: N4719)

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

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
