    1889 Quarter, PR68
    Great Eye Appeal

    1889 25C PR68 NGC. CAC. Briggs 2-B. Splashes of light brown visit the obverse silver-gray and soft violet surfaces of this PR68 quarter, while the reverse takes on slightly deeper violet patination. Well-struck design motifs stand out against the mirrored fields on both sides, displaying immaculate preservation. Great eye appeal.

    Variety: Briggs 2-B, the proof dies.

    Population Data (4/15): NGC reports four PR68 (two PR68 ), along with one each in PR68 Cameo, PR68 Cameo, and PR68 Ultra Cameo. PCGS shows one PR68 and none finer in any finish.

    Heritage Commentary: The small mintage of 12,000 circulation strikes places more date pressure on proof strikings (711 pieces). That said, 1889 proof quarters in Premium Gem and finer are infrequently seen.

    Provenance: Sotheby's (11/1999), lot 22.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 44CX, PCGS# 5590)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
