    1882 Quarter, PR68 Cameo
    Finest Surviving Cameo Example

    1882 25C PR68 Cameo NGC. The surfaces of this 1882 Seated quarter are virtually pristine, as expected of the grade, and distinctly contrasted with dynamic eye appeal. The sharply struck central devices are amply frosted and stand out from the surrounding fields, gunmetal-gray close to the centers with vibrant colors near the rims. Peripheral shadings are gold-orange and teal on each side with broader coverage on the reverse. With a mintage of 1,100 specimens, this proof issue is popular with type collectors, and the discerning enthusiast should recognize the importance of the present piece. This is the finest surviving Cameo example at either service (6/13).
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 3778, which brought $23,000.
    From The Greensboro Collection, Part IV.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23XE, PCGS# 85583)
