    Exquisite 1898 Barber Quarter, PR68 Ultra Cameo

    1898 25C PR68 Ultra Cameo NGC. Although the 1898 is among the more carefully preserved deliveries in the proof Barber Quarter series, few survivors can compare to the present Superb Gem from a technical standpoint. The surfaces are virtually flawless, and the fully struck, frosty textured devices appear to float atop unfathomably deep fields. Neither side displays any appreciable toning, and the eye appeal is nothing short of breathtaking. A tiny spot on the truncation of Liberty's neck is noted solely for accuracy. Population: 10 in 68, 5 finer (2/03).
    From an East Coast cabinet.

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

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
