    1911 Barber Quarter, PR68
    Beautifully Toned, Immaculate Specimen

    1911 25C PR68 PCGS. CAC. The sharply struck surfaces of this Superb Gem proof 1911 Barber quarter exhibit lovely blended hues of amber, lavender, ocean-blue, and violet over glassy, highly reflective surfaces. This coin has been well cared for since it emerged from the U.S. Mint more than 100 years ago. Both sides of the piece are contact-free and virtually immaculate.

    Population Data (7/14): NGC reports 14 PR68 and PCGS four in the same grade with none finer at either service.

    Heritage Commentary: This later issue had the third-lowest proof mintage of the Barber quarter series, at only 543 pieces struck. High-grade specimens are relatively numerous for such a small mintage, suggesting this was an unusually well-produced proof date.

    Provenance: Purchased from Stewart Blay (11/1999).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242T, PCGS# 5697)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
