1912 Quarter, Flawless PR69
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).
