1903 Quarter, PR68 Cameo
1903 25C PR68 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This Superb Gem proof
displays strong cameo contrast between its well-frosted central
elements, set against exceptionally deep-mirrored fields. Barber
quarters dated 1903 generally lack the strong contrast of earlier
proofs in the series, with just over a dozen Cameo pieces certified
at the Superb Gem level and none numerically finer at PCGS. New
dies briefly impart such contrast during the short run of proofs,
soon losing the frosted appearance regardless of strike
Brilliant With Strong Contrast
This is a particularly well-struck example, with pinpoint sharp detail throughout Liberty's portrait and the eagle's plumage. Not a hint of weakness exists along the eagle's right side, with the talon and arrows fully brought up. The tail feathers are crisp. An ideal Registry Set candidate with Cameo proof finish, exceeded by only two PR68 Deep Cameos at PCGS (7/20).
