    Superlative Cameo Proof 1912 Quarter Dollar

    1912 25C PR68 ★ Cameo NGC. This is an amazing Cameo proof with brilliant and vibrant obverse and reverse surfaces. Both sides have extremely deep mirrored fields with fully lustrous devices. In 1912, the Philadelphia Mint produced 700 proof quarter dollars, and the majority of these still survive. However, nearly all of the survivors are in lower grades. NGC has certified a total of 174 proof quarters of this date, but just 32 of those have been given the cameo designation, and none have been graded as ultra cameo. The top grade coins included four PR68, two PR68 ★ Cameo, and one PR69. This example represents the finest cameo proof example certified by NGC. Census: 2 in 68 ★ Cameo, 0 finer (7/06).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 242U, PCGS# 85698)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
