    Toned PR68 1901 Barber Quarter
    Defect-Free and Highly Reflective

    1901 25C PR68 NGC. The 1901 Barber quarter proof, with a nominal mintage of 813 pieces, perhaps boasts a little added cachet due to its proximity to the key 1901-S circulation strike. This incredibly high-grade PR68 piece exhibits remarkably deep fields, the obverse showing streaky russet and blue toning at the top and around the rim on the bottom, with much brilliance remaining in-between. The reverse sports powder-blue patina with a yellow-gold arc around bottom rim. As demanded at this grade level, the surfaces are defect-free. This piece is one of six submissions at this grade at NGC, with none finer (1/12).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242G, PCGS# 5687)
