    Simply Beautiful 1888 Seated Quarter in PR66 Cameo

    1888 25C PR66 Cameo NGC. A second and even finer Cameo proof 1888 Seated Quarter, this splendid Gem combines strong technical merits with gorgeous originality. As far as the former is concerned, there is nothing negative that we can say about either side. Both are fully struck, smooth, and possessed of captivating field-to-device contrast. What's more, the surfaces are peripherally toned in lovely lavender-blue shades with a swirl of similar color well concealed in Liberty's drapery near the center of the obverse. A coin that really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Population: 3 in 66 Cameo, none are finer with this finish (11/02).
    From the Col. Carmine Penta Collection. (NGC ID# 23XL, PCGS# 85589)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
