    1887 Quarter, Deeply Toned PR68
    Sole Finest Non-Cameo at NGC

    1887 25C PR68 NGC. Briggs 2-B. This pristine Superb Gem proof ought to garner much attention, a lovely and deeply toned piece with a pinkish-gold center on the obverse ceding to pale pastel blue-green patina near the edge. The latter color dominates the reverse on this crisply struck and thoroughly attractive coin.

    Variety: Briggs 2-B. Fine die scratches, die rust, and evidence of considerable rework/retouching appear on each side of these dies.

    Population Data (5/14):
    This PR68 NGC piece is the sole finest non-Cameo, but there is one PR68+ Cameo at that service as well. The finest at PCGS are two PR67.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1887 date is very scarce both as a proof and business strike, and this piece certainly approaches the upper end of the Condition Census. This late-series Superb Gem proof is certified in an old-style NGC "no-line fatty" holder, popular with many collectors.

    Provenance: Purchased from Aspen Park Rare Coins (2/2007).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23XK, PCGS# 5588)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
