    Remarkable 1908 Quarter, PR69 Cameo
    Sole Finest Certified for the Issue

    1908 25C PR69 Cameo NGC. Even at Heritage, where we regularly get the privilege of seeing "now here's a coin you don't see every day" material, this 1908-dated Barber quarter with the incredible grade of PR69 Cameo definitely made us sit up and take notice. The beaming surfaces are mostly silver-white, save the the subtlest suggestion of golden color at the extreme rims on each side. Even a loupe -- as expected but seldom attained -- reveals no mentionable distractions, although we note a tiny planchet "dot" flaw in the right reverse field, near the I in AMERICA, solely for pedigree purposes. The intense contrast is a bit heavier on the reverse, and the strike is full throughout.
    In the technical grade of PR69, for the entire type, NGC has certified 27 Barber quarters, undoubtedly including duplicates -- six non-Cameo, 11 Cameo, 10 Ultra Cameo. There are no PR70 coins certified. For the 1908 proof quarters, this PR69 Cameo is the sole example regardless of contrast. A remarkable coin for a Registry Set or type set.
