    1906 Quarter, PR66
    Delicately Toned, Ex: Childs

    1906 25C PR66 PCGS. Ex: The Childs Collection. This Premium Gem proof is boldly struck with deeply reflective fields and excellent surface preservation. The obverse shows subtle champagne, lavender, and mint-green hues, with faintly peppered aqua-blue overall; the reverse is more uniformly colored a soft golden-tan hue.

    Population Data (9/15): PCGS lists 40 PR66 (two PR66+) and 25 finer. NGC reports 48 submissions in PR66 and 39 finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The seemingly high number of non-Cameo 1906 proof quarters certified belies this issue's overall availability. Since Cameo examples are extremely rare and Deep Cameos are unknown, the non-Cameo population represents almost the entirety the 1906 proof's survival. Moreover, resubmissions are likely reflected in the above data (and perhaps far more than generally thought).

    Provenance: Possibly acquired directly from the Mint by Walter H. Childs; Walter H. Childs Collection (Bowers and Merena, 8/1999), lot 302.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242M, PCGS# 5692)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
