    Singular PR69 ★ Cameo 1890 Quarter

    1890 25C PR69 ★ Cameo NGC. The survival of a 19th coin so magnificently preserved as this PR69 Cameo quarter cannot be explained, only appreciated. It is one of only five proof Seated quarters rated as PR69 by NGC regardless of contrast, and one of just three graded PR69 Cameo with none Ultra Cameo (3/11). Needless to say, this coin stands far and away as the exemplar of the issue, with magnification a must to find the minuscule faults used to deny the piece a perfect grade. Stark black-and-white contrast has a small curiosity on the obverse, where a touch of overpolishing has left a narrow brilliant hollow at Liberty's waist and reflectivity in the shield stripes above the ribbon but not below.
