    1891 Quarter, PR68 Cameo
    Ex: Newman, Rich Multicolor Toning

    1891 25C PR68 Cameo PCGS. Briggs 1-A. Ex: Newman-Simpson. Delightful bands of pink-red, lemon-gold, and cobalt-blue patina adorn both sides of this exceptionally attractive Superb Gem. A sharp strike and immaculate preservation further attest to the immense eye appeal. Proof Seated quarter mintages peaked in 1880 and generally declined thereafter until the end of the series. The 1891 proof mintage was 600 pieces, less than half the 1880 production. A superior final-year proof Seated quarter can hardly be imagined, much less attained. Population: 3 in 68 (1 in 68+) Cameo, 0 finer (10/20).
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society; Eric P. Newman Collection, Part II (Heritage, 11/2013), lot 33206.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23XP, PCGS# 85592)
