    Description

    1898 Quarter, PR68+ ★ Ultra Cameo
    Incredible Technical and Aesthetic Quality

    1898 25C PR68+ ★ Ultra Cameo NGC. CAC. The silver proof coins of 1896 and 1898 are renowned for their marvelous high technical and aesthetic quality, and that quality, while most noteworthy among silver dollars, is certainly not limited to that series. Take note of the five qualifiers on this coin: PR68 NGC; Plus; Star; Ultra Cameo; and the CAC green label approval. Needless to say, this coin appears essentially perfect, with incredible eye appeal, to boot. The fields are deeply mirrored, with heavy mint frost on the devices. The centers are brilliant, ceding to reddish-russet and blue at the margins. Both sides appear mark-free. Census: 1 in 68+ Ultra Cameo, 5 finer (1/12).
    From The Aspen Collection of Proof Coinage.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242D, PCGS# 95684)
