1905 Quarter, PR68+ Cameo
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).
