    1912 Quarter, Flawless PR69
    The Single Finest Known
    Target-Toned Obverse

    1912 25C PR69 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The PCGS CoinFacts plate coin. Wow is the first word that comes to mind when examining this spectacularly toned, essentially flawless proof quarter. Each side exhibits a dramatically different toning scheme. The obverse shows rich, multicolored patina that forms a circular "target" area at the center. It is a deep sunset-golden color surrounded by shades of electric and gunmetal-blue tones. The reverse presents almost even steel-blue patina with rose accents as the coin is rotated under a light. The fields are flashy and reflective, effectively backlighting the partially frosted devices. A trace of cameo contrast is even apparent in spite of the rich, colorful overlay. Even under the closest scrutiny with a magnifier, one fails to note any defects or post-production blemishes. The strike is absolutely full, as expected. Of the 700 proofs struck, this outstanding PR69 representative rests atop the remainder as the single finest known. It has been crossed over from its previous PR69 Ex: Hugon NGC holder into this PR69 Ex: Simpson PCGS holder, explaining its appearance on both the NGC Census and PCGS Population Report. Population: 1 in 69, 0 finer (4/20).
    Ex: John C. Hugon Collection / FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 4194.
