    1905 Quarter, PR68+ Cameo
    The Single Finest Example Known

    1905 25C PR68+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The sole finest proof 1905 Barber quarter certified. The 1905 Barber proof is unknown with Deep or Ultra Cameo surfaces, and Cameo specimens are rare in any grade. PCGS reports 22 Cameo submissions, with only one -- the present piece -- that achieved the 68 numeric grade. That coin is offered here, and it is also Plus designated, which sets it firmly above the five PR68 Cameos reported at NGC, none of which are Plus graded (9/20). Captivating depth of mirroring in the fields and lively, frosted design elements earn this piece high marks for eye appeal and strike quality, while a complete absence of surface contact vaults this coin to finest-known status. For the most advanced Registry collectors, no proof 1905 quarter compares to this example. Population: 1 in 68 (1 in 68+) Cameo, 0 finer (9/20).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242L, PCGS# 85691)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
