    1901 Quarter, PR68
    Rich, Iridescent Toning

    1901 25C PR68 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The mintage for the 1901 proof Barber quarter was just 813 pieces. From that small number, no finer example could be found today. This is a wondrous Superb Gem proof, deeply and completely toned in rich crimson and cobalt-blue iridescence, with reddish highlights visible as the coin turns under a light. The underlying mirror surfaces are about as close to technical perfection as one is likely to find for this date. A magnificently preserved Superb Gem worthy of the finest numismatic cabinet. Population: 3 in 68 (1 in 68+), 0 finer. CAC: 4 in 68, 0 finer (8/20).
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 4183.(Registry values: N4719)

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

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
