    Superb Proof 1897 Quarter

    1897 PR 68 NGC. An astonishing coin in terms of condition and unquestioned originality. A splendid proof with light champagne and gray toning on the portrait that changes to light gold in the fields, then blending to hints of blue and iridescence at the rims. This is certainly one of the finest survivors from just 731 pieces originally coined, and it is the only piece so graded by NGC, being rivaled only by a single PCGS coin with none finer (10/97).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242C, PCGS# 5683)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
