1906 Barber Quarter, PR68
1906 25C PR68 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The fields on this
remarkable proof Barber quarter showcase outstanding mirrored
reflectivity -- a quality that is immediately apparent even through
the multiple layers of toning present over each side. Mottled
multicolored iridescence graces both the obverse and reverse,
alternating shades of purple, lilac, gold, and crimson with subtle
variances as the coin is rotated under a light. This proof may have
fallen two points shy of perfection, but good luck picking up where
it lost marks. Wonderful technical quality combined with
exceptional eye appeal, and one of the finest surviving pieces from
an impressively low proof mintage of only 675 pieces. Population: 4
in 68 (1 in 68+), 0 finer in this category (4/20).
