    1883 Seated Quarter, PR69 Cameo
    Finest Known, Ex: Newman

    1883 25C PR69 Cameo PCGS. Briggs 1-A. Ex: Newman-Simpson. Formerly one of the highlights of the Eric Newman Collection and now offered as part of the Bob R. Simpson Collection, this 1883 Seated quarter merits a numeric grade that is far more typical of modern-day proof Washington quarters or Kennedy half dollars. When last seen, this piece was certified by NGC in the near-perfect grade of PR69 ?Cameo, and it now resides in a PR69 Cameo PCGS holder. Regardless, it is immediately recognizable as one of, if not the finest proof Seated quarters extant.

    The immaculate surfaces are fully struck and phenomenally eye-appealing, showing the familiar but ever-lovely toning pattern emblematic of so many former Newman coins. It has been nearly seven years since we last handled this beauty, and we are delighted to have the chance to see it again. We suspect it will be years before a similar opportunity presents itself. Population: 1 in 69 Cameo, 0 finer (8/20).
