    1899 Barber Quarter, PR69 Deep Cameo
    Sole Finest 1899 Proof at PCGS

    Tied for Finest Proof Barber Quarter

    1899 25C PR69 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Among the finest-known proof Barber quarters of any date. This stunning, essentially flawless Registry coin is the sole finest 1899 proof quarter at PCGS, tied with a single PR69 Ultra Cameo coin listed at NGC for finest overall. PCGS has graded only two other proof Barber quarters of any date as PR69 Deep Cameo, placing this coin firmly within the Condition Census of all known proof Barber quarters (9/20). The quality of the preservation matches the beauty of the strike, with liquidlike fields contrasting against razor-sharp, frosty design elements. The faintest trace of light champagne tinting accents the essentially brilliant surfaces. This coin appears as though it was struck yesterday. Registry collectors and type collectors need look no further for the finest possible coin for their collections.(Registry values: P1)

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

    Weight: 6.25 grams
