Lot Description
1886 25C PR67 PCGS. CAC. The white-on-black contrast on this Superb Gem proof 1886 Seated quarter is comparable to modern Ultra Cameo proofs, but no Cameo designation is present due to the generation of the green label holder. Astute collectors should nonetheless recognize this piece for what it is. The surfaces are brilliant silver-white throughout and practically pristine, with an unimprovable strike. A tiny curlicue lintmark by star 4 provides a pedigree marker. A low-mintage issue for both business strikes and proofs, 5,000 of the former, 886 of the latter. Population: 8 in 67, 0 finer (3/12). Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2010), which realized $12,075.
