    1904 Barber Quarter, PR66
    Strong Candidate for Type Purposes

    1904 25C PR66 NGC. This high-grade proof quarter is representative of the uncontrasted method of proof coin manufacture that was in its third year in the Mint in 1904. Some contrast occurs on the reverse, but virtually none on the obverse. Patchy golden-rose and cobalt-blue areas are scattered over each side, along with occasional dabs and streaks of brilliance. From a technical standpoint, each side appears perfectly preserved.

    Population Data (7/14): An unusually high number of proof quarters were preserved of this date, making the 1904 a good choice for type purposes. NGC shows 37 pieces in PR66 with 39 examples finer. PCGS reports 29 in PR66 and 10 finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The mintage of 670 proofs is a constant from the dime through dollar. A significantly higher number (1,817 sets) of minor proof sets were struck.

    Provenance: Purchased as part of a five-piece 1904 proof set from Bill Nagle (9/2011).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242K, PCGS# 5690)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
