    1906 Barber Quarter, PR68
    Among the Top Certified
    Ex: Hugon, Simpson

    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).
    Ex: John C. Hugon Collection / FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 4188.
