    Colorful PR68 1901 Barber Quarter

    1901 25C PR68 NGC. CAC. Vivid bands of electric-blue, ruby-red, and straw-gold color hug the borders but cede to a window of brilliance on the central reverse and light lilac-gray on the bust of Liberty. The surfaces appear immaculate, even upon inspection with a loupe, and only a hint of striking softness on the right shield corner and the fletchings denies perfection. A scant 813 proofs were struck. Census: 6 in 68, 0 finer (9/11).
