    Unique Deep Cameo-Designated Proof 1881 Quarter, PCGS Graded PR68

    1881 25C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. This is the first proof 1881 Seated Quarter to receive a Deep Cameo designation at PCGS (as of 1/03). The eye appeal is breathtaking with solid field-to-device contrast and a bright, untoned sheen. Every last feature is full brought up by an obviously powerful impression, and the surfaces do not reveal a single blemish that would cause one to question the validity of the PR68 assessment. The 1881 is a popular issue from the final decade of Seated Quarter production. Only 12,000 business strikes were produced, along with 975 proofs. The coin in this lot is the ultimate representative of the latter delivery, and it should have little difficulty finding its way into a type set of finest certified coins. (NGC ID# 23XD, PCGS# 95582)

    Weight: 6.25 grams
