    1907 Barber Quarter, PR68 Cameo
    Elusive Contrasted Proof

    1907 25C PR68 Cameo NGC. CAC. By the early 1900s, Cameo contrast on proof coins was a thing of the past, as officials at the new third Philadelphia Mint facility suppressed the appearance of frosted proof coinage. While today's collectors covet Cameo and Deep Cameo proofs, Mint officials found them unattractive.

    This amazing Superb Gem features excellent field-to-device contrast. The obverse has swirls of gold and iridescent toning, while the reverse is almost entirely untoned, save for delicate peripheral iridescence. NGC has certified three in PR68 Cameo, one in PR68 Ultra Cameo, and one in PR69 (10/14).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242N, PCGS# 85693)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
