    1899 Quarter, PR67+ Deep Cameo
    Profoundly Rare This Well-Contrasted
    Tied for Finest Certified at PCGS

    1899 25C PR67+ Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. This Superb Gem proof 1899 Barber quarter offers collectors the best of both worlds: lightly toned on one side, essentially brilliant on the other, and starkly contrasted between fields and devices on both. The obverse sports a veil of light golden toning that transitions to deeper russet, lilac, and steel-blue around the periphery, and spills over onto the extreme outer rims of the reverse. It is difficult to conceive of deeper field-device contrast, however, than that seen on this remarkably well-struck and well-preserved specimen. The proof strike is uniformly full throughout both sides. The proof 1899 quarter is not challenging in an absolute sense, but deeply contrasted examples are extremely rare. Population: 3 in 67 (2 in 67+) Deep Cameo, 0 finer (9/14).(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242E, PCGS# 95685)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
