    1909 Quarter Dollar, Toned PR68
    Top-Grade PCGS Registry Contender

    1909 25C PR68 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. PCGS lists a couple of Cameo proof 1909 Barber quarters in PR67+ and a lone Deep Cameo example in PR67, but no contrasted examples have earned a finer designation at that service. This non-Cameo is one of just 10 1905 proofs at PCGS in PR68 (one of which is PR68+), with none finer (9/20). There is no flaw to be found in the liquidlike fields or frosted devices, and the sharpness of the strike is as perfect as the preservation. This coin trades the appearance of cameo contrast for vivid, colorful hues of toning that dazzle the viewer's eye. Shades of lavender, blue, gold, and green spread across each side, and beneath them the surfaces are original and essentially perfect. Population: 10 in 68 (1 in 68+), 0 finer (9/20).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242R, PCGS# 5695)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
