    1876 Quarter, PR68 ★
    Centennial Issue, Tied for Numeric Finest

    1876 25C PR68 ★ NGC. CAC. Type Two Reverse. Anticipating a large demand for proof sets in 1876, because of the Centennial date, a generous mintage of 1,150 Seated Liberty quarters was accomplished. The commemorative importance of the date makes this proof Seated quarter as popular now as it was in 1876. Deep purplish-blue rim toning encloses a ring of amber-gold in the centers on each side of this fully struck proof. Some numismatists would argue for a Cameo designation, and there is certainly perceptible contrast. The untroubled surfaces and top-notch eye appeal will entice even the most discriminating buyers. This piece is tied for the numerically finest known, and has an edge over the other PR68 NGC example because of the coveted Star designation, awarded for outstanding eye appeal. Census: 2 in 68 (1 in 68 ), 0 finer (10/13).
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23X8, PCGS# 5577)

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
