    Ultra Cameo PR68 1889 Quarter

    1889 25C PR68 Ultra Cameo NGC. Out of 711 proof 1889 Seated quarters struck, NGC has certified six of them as having Ultra Cameo surfaces. The present piece, at PR68 Ultra Cameo, is the single finest certified example in the Census Report (3/11), a sure draw for Registry Set collectors. Even those with no interest in Registry Set collecting are certain to appreciate the absolute contrast on each side, the faint canary-yellow accents over fathomless mirrors, and the richly frosted central devices. Both sides are magnificently preserved, and a more appealing specimen is difficult to imagine.
    From The Slotkin Family Trust Collection.(Registry values: P1)
