    Description

    Superlative 1898 Barber Quarter
    PR67 Deep Cameo

    1898 25C PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. The Philadelphia Mint had perfected the manufacturing techniques of proof coinage by the late 1890s. Proof coins from this era can hold their own with the best examples produced today, as evidenced by the magnificent coin offered here. The frosty devices of this Superb Gem proof appear to float over the deep watery fields, and whispers of light gold and violet appear at the borders under magnification. A solid strike manifests itself in complete definition on the design elements. The surfaces of both sides are impeccably preserved. The original proof mintage of just 735 pieces has been drastically reduced over the years by improper cleaning, and many examples were spent by noncollecting heirs during the hard days of the Depression. Population: 13 in 67 Deep Cameo, 5 finer (2/09).
    From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N4719)
