    Description

    Originally Toned Superb Gem Proof 1899 Quarter

    1899 25C PR67 ICG. Close examination with a magnifier fails to reveal any flaws on either side, surely there must be but we just haven't found them yet. This is an unquestionably original coin. This may sound like an unusual statement at first since the centers of each side show a significant amount of brilliance. However, this brilliance is shot through with small flecks of original patina that are really only apparent with a loupe. The obverse periphery is outlined with light golden and powder-blue iridescence. The reverse shows these same colors but the light blue is on the top of that side with the golden across the bottom half. Deeply mirrored with a light layer of mint frost on the devices.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242E, PCGS# 5685)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
