1886 Quarter Dollar, PR68 Deep Cameo
1886 25C PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS. There is no finer example of
the 1886 quarter, as this is the only PCGS-certified PR68 Deep
Cameo specimen, and only two appear on the NGC Census Report
(11/12). The proof mintage was halted at 886 examples in 1886,
certainly a coincidence when comparing years and mintage figures.
Over the years, we have offered six examples in PR67 Deep Cameo
PCGS, but this is the first PR68 Deep Cameo PCGS piece to appear in
any of our auctions. This piece is the only such coin certified at
PCGS, the single finest 1886 proof quarter that service has seen.
It is destined for a top Set Registry collection.
The Finest Specimen at PCGS
Consideration of the Cameo and Deep Cameo rarity of 1886 is extremely important to understand. In all grades and designations, PCGS has certified 311 proof 1886 quarters. That total includes 248 undesignated proofs, 51 Cameo proofs, and 12 Deep Cameo coins. That equates to only four Deep Cameo proofs for every 100 submissions of this date.
In addition to its finest-certified status, this piece has amazing eye appeal, created through the combination of extraordinarily thick mint frost on the sharply defined devices with deeply mirrored fields. Both sides are fully brilliant with no evidence of toning anywhere on the obverse or reverse. An absolutely stunning Superb Gem, a coin that will please even the most fastidious connoisseur of 19th century silver type coins.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23XJ, PCGS# 95587)
