    1898 Quarter, PR69 Ultra Cameo
    Boldly Contrasted Near-Perfection

    1898 25C PR69 Ultra Cameo NGC. Though its mintage amounted to just 735 specimens, the 1898 quarter accounts for eight certification events at the PR69 Ultra Cameo or Deep Cameo level: one Deep Cameo at PCGS, one ★ Ultra Cameo at NGC, and six non-Star Ultra Cameos graded by the latter firm (6/13). Magnificently preserved with astounding contrast, this piece has only the faintest skiffs of whitish patina across gleaming silver fields that surround impeccably frosted devices. When the coin is held at an angle away from the light, both sides, but especially the reverse, present as black-and-white.(Registry values: N7079)

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

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
