    Deep Cameo PR68 1898 Quarter
    Stunning Contrast

    1898 25C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. The frost on the devices is, in a word, incredible. The portrait's definition is crystal-sharp, as is the eagle's, and the mirrors are remarkably deep even through light gray patina that turns cloudy at the upper right stars of the reverse. All-around preservation is as excellent as expected for a coin at the PR68 level. The year 1898 marks the end of a seeming "golden age" for proof excellence, and specimens like this one are responsible for extending the definition of that time so far. Population: 6 in 68 (1 in 68+) Deep Cameo, 1 finer (12/12).(Registry values: N4719)

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

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
