    Superlative PR67 Deep Cameo 1888 Quarter

    1888 25C PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. In 1888, quarters were an afterthought, with a mere 10,000 circulation strikes minted in Philadelphia at a time when the Mint was obligated to produce large quantities of silver dollars. Proof coinage continued as normal during this period, with 832 quarters produced especially for sale to collectors.
    Of this proof mintage, it would be difficult to imagine a finer and more appealing specimen that the current coin, a blazing black and white beauty that appears as if it could have been minted yesterday. The mirrored surfaces are unbelievably deep, and the strength of their contrast with the frosted devices merit PCGS' Deep Cameo designation, the only one assigned to any proof 1888 quarter in any grade by either major grading service (5/08). The surfaces are also completely brilliant. The design elements display crisp definition, though a bit of softness is visible in some of the obverse stars, and both sides are impeccably preserved; it would be difficult to even identify a pedigree marker.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23XL, PCGS# 95589)
